Highway dedicated to 2 killed in Station Fire

Monday, November 15, 2010

A memorial highway was dedicated on Monday to two L.A. County firefighters who lost their lives in last year's Station Fire.

Capt. Ted Hall and Spc. Arnie Quinones were killed when their truck plunged 800 feet off a dirt road as they battled oncoming flames.

A section of the Angeles Forest Highway through the burned area was renamed in their honor.

The Station Fire burned more than 250 square miles and destroyed 89 homes. It was the largest in L.A. County history.
