[CaliforniaDisasters] Event: 1997 Narrows Fire Anniversary #cal-invite

1997 Narrows Fire Anniversary

Tuesday, 13 August 2019

On this date in 1997 in the San Gabriel Mountains above Glendora a hiker having just used a primitive latrine believed the most sanitary and environmentally-friendly course of action was to burn their wipes.

The ensuing fire burned up and over the San Gabriel Mountains jumping Highway 2 at one point and consuming 18,186 acres.

Some local wags christened the incident the "Charmin Fire".

Good footage of it on this Youtube: https://youtu.be/hPdH5gl1fTo
