A SWAT standoff in Upland came to an end after the suspect’s home caught on fire and burned down.
The incident started at about 3:15 p.m. when authorities tried to serve a search warrant at the 1500 block of Fairwood Way, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department. When law enforcement approached the home, a suspect fired at deputies.
