Two Firefighters Killed Battling Blaze

The massive fire in the Angeles National Forest took two lives on Sunday afternoon. The Los Angeles Country firefighters were among the more than 2,000 fire personnel currently battling the blaze. More from the Los Angeles Times on the tragedy:

The two firefighters were killed when they drove off the side of a treacherous road in the Mt. Gleason area, south of Acton, around 2:30 p.m., said Los Angeles County Deputy Fire Chief Mike Bryant. They were later identified as Arnaldo Quinones, 35, of Palmdale and Tedmund Hall, 47, of San Bernardino County.

“This accident is tragic,” Bryant said, choking up as he spoke Sunday evening. “This is a very difficult time for L.A. County Fire Department and the men and women that serve day in, day out.”
