Firefighters have gained ground against a wildfire burning in a southern California mountain pass that has forced tens of thousands of residents to flee and destroyed about 100 homes, officials said.

.

The Blue Cut fire, named for a narrow gorge near its origin in the Cajon Pass about 75 miles (120 km) northeast of Los Angeles, has blackened 37,000 acres (14,973 hectares) of drought-parched heavy brush and chaparral after breaking out on Tuesday.

.

The blaze has destroyed 96 single-family homes and 213 outbuildings, according to a preliminary assessment from teams in the field, fire information officer Lyn Sieliet said by telephone.

.

Officials said firefighters were able to carve containment lines around 40% of the blaze as of Friday night, despite dry, hot and windy weather conditions and treacherous terrain.

.

The intensely burning blaze, which has produced cyclone-like whirls of flame, continued to threaten around 34,500 homes and other structures in communities including the ski resort town of Wrightwood, fire officials said.

.

Among the structures burned was the Summit Inn, a popular diner on the historic Route 66 cross-country highway.

.

Its awful. Its a bad feeling now to see it all burn up, said 84-year-old Cecil Stevens, who owned the diner for nearly 50 years before recently selling it.

.

Weve had a lot of fires and a lot of accidents in this area, but we always managed to get out of it without being hurt, but this time its different. Its over.

History[edit]
The original Summit Inn was in operation in 1928[3] and takes its name from its original location at the summit of the Cajon Pass between the westbound and eastbound lanes of US 66.

.

The present location in unincorporated Oak Hills, California, had been in operation since 1952 when 66 was rerouted along a somewhat lower elevation. 1953-era postcards depict a Horseless Carriage Rally at the Summit Inn which included vintage Ford Model T’s.[4]

.

Cecil C.A. Stevens bought the station and restaurant from original builder Burt Riley in 1966; he’d wanted just the Texaco filling station on the site but agreed to buy both if Hilda Fish, a German woman who ran the restaurant, were willing to stay to run the place. Hilda Fish retired in 2002[5] and is now deceased.[6]

.

Route 66 in the area was obliterated by Interstate 15 in California by 1970.[7]

.

On March 27, 2014, an intoxicated driver, Jayson Ernest Johnson of Riverside, California, was arrested for crashing a stolen van into the restaurant, causing $200,000 in damage.[8] The driver pled guilty to a lesser charge and received a suspended sentence. The entire kitchen was rebuilt using an insurance payout and the restaurant re-opened at the end of July 2014.[9] The vintage building which once served as a Texaco station remained on the property, although gasoline was no longer sold there. The Summit Inn’s small gift shop still sold Texaco-related memorabilia and a great many original metal oil company signs decorated the rest of the interior.
