[californiadisasters] Anniversary Reminder

Reminder from:   californiadisasters Yahoo! Group
Title:   1996 Grand Fire
Date:   Wednesday April 28, 2010
Time:   12:00 pm - 12:00 pm
Repeats:   This event repeats every year.
Location:   Ventura County
Notes:   On this date in 1996 the Grand Fire began in eastern Ventura County near Fillmore.

Driven by strong Santa Ana Winds it pushed across the southern face of the Topatopa Mountains above Fillmore and scorched 10,925 acres and damaged some orchards to the north of Highway 126.

Southern California Edison was found liable for damages as the fire was deemed to be caused by one of their powerlines interacting with inadquately trimmed branches.
Later in 1996 they would get in trouble again for the same thing relating to the problem as it related to the Calabasas (Malibu) Fire.
