The Basin Complex Fire of 2008
"In Big Sur the
Basin Complex Fire of 2008 continued to burn for another month, scorching
162,818 acres. After firefighters directed the fire into the
still-burning area of an earlier blaze, the combined Basin-Indians Fire burned 240,000 acres, making
it a contender for the state’s second-largest wildfire on record. Over
90 percent of the burn was within Los Padres National Forest’s unsettled
and wild Ventana Wilderness."
