Fire officials said there is no word on what caused the fire and that the arson detectives are still investigation a possible fire starter or it might of started naturally.
There is lots of raw glass shrouds from year of bottles being tossed into this canyon and that might of been what caused the fire.
The Los Angeles County deployed more than 200 Firefighters and 150 Firefighters from other agencies like Ventura County Fire Department and Cal Fire inmates to battle this fire before it got too out-of-control.
The Fire Chief told Baddboyfilms News that if it wasn't for Cal Fire inmates on Fire camp crews by California Dept. of Corrections and Rehabilitations, this fire would of been a lot larger and the town inside the canyon (Topanga, CA.) would of been a total loss.
There , inside the canyon is a little town, Population of about 8,289 and you can find more information on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Listed under: Topanga, California
California Dept. of Corrections and Rehabilitation sent in their "Fire-Ants" which are inmates who volunteered to work as Firefighters battling brush fire for the state of California in exchange for time off their prison sentences.
"These inmates climbed a 400ft mountain carrying chain saws, shoves, fat fire hoses and fire retardant clothing, heavy gear without hesitation. Men and Women and they really deserve all of the credit"!
...said a Battalion Chief of the location on site of this raging fire Friday.
"If it wasn't for these courageous inmates with Cal Fire, out whole town of Topanga, Ca. would of went up in smoke"!
To think about all the lives we would have lost on that day in history"? Cal Fire inmates are the best program to help all Fire Departments in California.
Respect them. They are lifesavers too. Saving theirs and yours. The Cal Fire program works both ways, for the inmates and for the free civilians in need of help in a situation they themselves cannot control.
