Los Angeles County officials on Monday dedicated a section of the Angeles Forest Highway in honor of two firefighters who died last year while battling the Station fire. The 25-mile stretch of mountainous roadway, which cuts through the Angeles National Forest south of Sierra Highway near Acton before connecting to Angeles Crest Highway, is now known as the Los Angeles County Fire Department Capt. Ted Hall and Engineer Arnie Quinones Memorial Highway. The two veteran Los Angeles County firefighters were protecting an evacuation route for members of the remote Fire Camp 16 on Aug. 30, 2009, when their truck was overcome by the advancing fire, veered off a dirt roadway near Mt. Gleason and plunged hundreds of feet into a canyon.

Station 82 Specialist John Kaulback said what he’ll miss most about his friend Firefighter Specialist Arnaldo “Arnie” Quinones was his warmness. “We used to call him the ‘Mayor of Palmdale’,” Kaulback said. “He was a friendly guy and everybody knew him. He had more friends than Carter has pills.” The Station fire claimed the lives of Quinones, 34, and Capt. Tedmund D. “Ted” Hall, 47, on Sunday when their truck slid 800 feet off a road while protecting Fire Camp 16 in Palmdale.

With storms poised to arrive last night and continue into the weekend, the city of La Cañada Flintridge reports that all local debris basins are in good condition, but that officials will be keeping an eye out for potential flooding or debris flows. “The weather indications do give advisories for the 'recent' burn areas as listed, but does not specifically name the Station fire area,” said City Manager Mark Alexander in an email interview. “We are cautiously hopeful that the prior run-off combined with hillside growth in the Station fire burn areas over the past four and a half years is sufficient to avoid further mudslide and debris run-off, albeit we can expect some residual or moderate run-off.

After a morning hike in the Angeles National Forest, Los Angeles County firefighters who work at Fire Camp 2 returned to their La Cañada Flintridge station, prepared to start an ordinary Monday. But when they filed out of a fire truck, they found a surprise: A Westin Hotels & Resort truck, stocked full of mattresses. They were shocked and confused at first. None of them had expected the donation. But the men cheered and whistled once they realized what was happening. John Paul Hilsabeck, 24, said he sleeps at the station two to three nights a week.

You start to think about the people behind that, and it was just great to see that nobody was hurt.
