SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) - The owner of a mountain cabin where Christopher Dorner was cornered and died wants San Bernardino County to pay her $420,000 because it burned to the ground.

The San Bernardino Sun says Candace Martin of Palmdale filed a claim in May that contends tear gas canisters set her cabin near Barton Flats on fire and sheriff's deputies let it burn.

Dorner, a fired Los Angeles policeman out for revenge, shot and killed four people during a February rampage that led to a shootout at the cabin. He then killed himself.

Martin's claim was filed jointly with that of Palmdale resident Eric Funnel, who's seeking $10,000.

County spokesman David Wert says the county is still gathering information from the pair and the claims remain open.
