Glendora: Subsequent to a large fire earlier in the
week that devastated homes and property, the air crew conducted patrols in the
area of the hills above the City of Glendora.
During two of these patrols “flare-ups” were seen and immediately
reported to fire personnel. This allowed
for an extremely rapid response that led both small fires being extinguished
before they grew in size and magnitude.
This type of cooperation between regional police and fire resources
prevented a potential large scale incident from taking place and saved the
residents of Glendora and surrounding cities from suffering the effects of a
second fire incident.
