Cops fired incendiary tear gas into a suspected killer’s hideout, igniting an inferno that helped end one of the most intense manhunts in California history, officials said today.

Christopher Jordan Dorner, 33, and pursuing San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputies were in a fierce gun battle yesterday when the accused killer took shelter inside a cabin near Big Bear Lake.

Dorner allegedly shot two deputies -- one who later died -- before SWAT officers surrounded the cabin.

Sheriff John McMahon insisted the flammable tear gas wasn't fired to set a deadly fire. 

"We did not intentionally burn down that cabin to get Mr. Dorner to come out," McMahon said today

The fallen deputy was identified today as 35-year-old Jeremiah MacKay, according to the Inland Empire Emerald Society -- a non-profit that supports survivors of cops killed in duty.

Det. MacKay was on an early patrol this past Saturday morning when he told The Associated Press that Dorner could be anywhere.
