The Aftermath of the Palos Verdes Fire of August 2009
On the evening of August 27, 2009 fire broke out on the Palos Verdes Peninsula in the city of Rancho Palos Verdes, California. According to news reports, by the time firefighters put it out it had burned 235 acres located primarily in the Canyons Preserve portion of the Palos Verdes Nature Preserve. This area is used by equestrians in the area, many of whom live or board their horses on the edge of this preserve. Here are some pictures of the burn area immediately after the fire was quenched.
These pictures were taken by Amy Matthews shown here with her horse, Quincy. Thanks, Amy.
