THE fire that ravaged Griffith Park on Tuesday charred more than 600 acres, but it could have been a lot worse had it not been for the hard work of many people. There are the firefighters who fought the flames, the police officers who helped evacuate residents, the zoo personnel who kept the animals safe and many others who helped in various ways. Wildfires are a fact of life in Southern California, and this year’s combination of low rainfall and projected high temperatures makes it likely that more wildfires are in the forecast. This is a great concern, but one mitigated by the awesome display of commitment and skill from crews of city workers this week.last_img
