On this morning about this time in 1968 a Santa Ana Wind-driven fire in the hills above Azusa burning along Glendora Ridge trapped and killed an Los Angeles County Fire Department camp crew (Crew 4-4) killing seven men and their foreman following a spot fire establishing below them as a result of a fire whirl. The fire started the previous day and ultimately burned 20,200 acres.
