Forest Interchange Named In Honor Of Firefighters Killed In Station Fire
LANCASTER (CBSLA.com) — An interchange from Highway 14 to Angeles Forest Highway has been renamed in honor of two firefighters who died while battling the devastating Station Fire.
Fire and county officials gathered Wednesday to see a sign proclaiming the interchange the “Los Angeles County Fire Captain Ted Hall and Engineer Arnie Quinones Memorial Interchange” be unveiled at Los Angeles County Fire Department Fire Station 129.
Hall and Quinones were the only firefighters killed while fighting the 250-square-mile Station Fire, which burned 89 homes in the foothills northeast of downtown Los Angeles in 2009. Hall and Quinones had gone back to try and drive back flames that had trapped their fellow firefighters.
