Christopher Dorner Manhunt: Cabin Where Fugitive Ex-Cop Holed Up Is on Fire The remote California mountain cabin in which fugitive ex-cop Christopher Dorner has barricaded himself in tense standoff with police is on fire, following a shootout with police in which one officer was killed and another wounded.
