A Summit Inn employee posted to the restaurant's Facebook page that they were being evacuated due to the fire. That was about 3 hours ago. 2 hours later, the restaurant was gone.
The Bluecut fire started today on the west side of I-15 down fairly close to Cleghorn Rd, where you exit I-15 to continue Route 66 on Cajon Blvd. The fast-moving blaze has already burned about 10,000 acres.
Frequent Route 66 travelers are likely familiar with the McDonald's restaurant on Wagon Wheel Rd, a dead-end alignment of Route 66 at the Cajon Pass/Hwy 139 exit from I-15. The McDonald's was also damaged by fire, but last I heard the structure was saved. It will almost certainly be closed for some time for repairs.
I've enjoyed a good hearty breakfast at The Summit Inn more times than I can count. We were planning to eat there again next month when we launched our next Route 66 adventure. This is a very sad day!

Very sad to see the Summit was lost. But, it's good news indeed that they will rebuild.Boris wrote:This is devistating, but good news that they plan to re-build.
It's not going to be easy to replace that same feeling but I'm sure they'll make a go of it.

More concerning, just south of the spot where the restaurant sat, we noticed a lot for sale sign attached to the chainlink fence facing I-15. It was difficult to be certain, but my gut is telling me the sign is for the lot where the restaurant sat. I have a feeling the family has decided NOT to rebuild.
Anyone have any specifics or updates?
