County Road s-2 of the Angeles Forest Highway will be renamed the “Capt. Ted Hall and Engineer Arnie Quinones Memorial Highway” at a ceremony scheduled for Monday.

Hall and Quinones were killed Aug. 30, when their fire truck rolled 800 feet down a hillside near Mount Gleason.

County Supervisor Michael Antonovich will join other luminaries to honor the men at 11 a.m. at Fire Station 129, located near the Antelope Valley Government Center.
