BIG BEAR — The cabin where authorities believe Christopher Dorner has barricaded himself appears to be on fire.

Reports from the scene indicate there were several gunshots heard from inside the location before the cabin erupted in flames.

Law enforcement sources said “a tactical operation” was underway at the cabin but did not provide further details.

The cabin is now fully engulfed in flames, and sound of exploding ammunition can still be heard from the location.

For safety reasons, fire officials say they will allow the structure to burn to the ground.
