We have received news that the Vetter Mountain Lookout Tower (pictured in the header photo of the ANFFLA website) was lost in the Station Fire. While we are saddened by the loss of this historical building, we hold fondly our memories of time spent on the mountain top. In a sadly ironic twist it was exactly seven years ago that we lost the South Mount Hawkins Lookout Tower to the Curve Fire.
While we do grieve the loss of such a wonderful and historic feature of the Angeles National Forest, we grieve all the more for those who have lost homes and loved ones to the Station Fire.
This is the only specific update that we have recieved today. For additional news and information please see the previous news posting with links to official information channels.
