BIG BEAR, Calif. - The cabin where a former Los Angeles police officer is believed to be holed up is on fire.
TV footage from the scene shows smoke pouring from the cabin.
Police surrounded the cabin in the snow-covered woods of Big Bear, a resort town about 80 miles east of Los Angeles where authorities have focused their hunt for Christopher Dorner since they said he had launched a campaign to exact revenge against the Los Angeles Police Department for his firing.
Police said Dorner exchanged fire with officers when they confronted him earlier Tuesday evening. One officer has since died from their injuries.
