Shrine Camp Fire July, 2013

     The fast-moving wildfire in the remote location proved difficult for firefighters to get a handle on. The boundaries of the fire grew quickly Monday as the winds from the desert floor collided with those from the ocean causing erratic conditions.
     El Prado, Horse Heaven and Laguna Campgrounds were evacuated, as well as the Al Bahr Shrine Camp and the Foster Lodge.
     Al Bahr Shriners camp took a direct hit from the fire with reports of propane tanks exploding on the property.
     The camp lost a total of 23 buildings to the fire, including a 99-year-old lodge. Also gone are homes that have been used by local families for more than 60 years.
     Several residents felt safe leaving their belongings because the old campground had survived so many previous wildfires, according to Deborah Chandler, who started visiting the campground in 1973.
