Seven teenage Civilian Conservation Corps enrollees and a forestry foreman lost their lives attempting to extinguish a 134-acre wildfire here. The crew had insufficient experience and training and were exhausted from fighting a previous fire. The Wildfire Lessons Learned Center incorporated these tragic events into a case study for training firefighters nationwide. The ongoing training has saved many lives.
