Default Forest Fires / Angeles Shooting Range: Mandatory Evacuation - Little Tujunga Canyon

Did not see any other posts about this yet today, but even if there are, did not see any here so best to post it anyway as a PSA. Ironically I was going to head up there this morning for a few hours with a couple of guns I've been working on.

Calling it the "Creek Fire". More irony.

'Creek Fire' Burns 4,000 Acres above Sylmar and Prompts Evacuations"

Updated: Dec 05 2017 10:04AM PST - SYLMAR (CNS) - An early-morning second-alarm brush fire that broke out in the Kagel Canyon area above Sylmar Tuesday charred more than 4,000 acres, damaged at least one home and prompted the evacuation of people and animals.

The blaze, dubbed the Creek Fire, was reported at 3:42 a.m. in the area of Gold Creek and Little Tujunga roads, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department, which was assisting the U.S. Forest Service and the Los Angeles Fire Department in the battle.

No injuries were reported as of 8 a.m. Fire officials said "multiple structures,'' including homes, are threatened. Reports indicated that at least one home had been damaged but firefighters told reporters at the scene that four or five others had also caught fire.

I rarely dive into the Off-Topic section on a gun website, Calguns especially, and this is relevant to people that come here to talk about guns as their primary concerns, instead of farts, bowel movements, bacon, their feelings, and the Kardashians. I never would have seen that post otherwise.

I was packed and ready to head up there this morning with a couple of 1911s and a SIG P210. Stepped out and the only way I knew this was 'afire', was from all the smoke blowing across the valley.

Default Angeles Shooting Ranges (So Cal) Signifcanly damaged in fire.

I just received word from a friend that Angeles Shooting Range "Burned down" in what is being called the Creek fire. I am unclear as to the specific damage. I will update this post as i come by further and more specific information. If you have any more detailed information please post it up.

**Please post information updates to this thread, it seams to be the main thread on the subject atm.**
Huge Brush fire In Sylmar, Angeles Range Threatened
http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...0371?t=1406168

This is really unfortunate, I have used the Angeles Shooting Range allot since i got into shooting. I very much enjoyed the place. Hopefully they will get things sorted out and everyone is alright.

Edit 1: There is more information in forum member CALI-gula's thread linked below. "The range is on fire. The office has been destroyed. "

Forest Fires / Angeles Shooting Range: Mandatory Evacuation - Little Tujunga Canyon
http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s....php?t=1406214

Edit 2: There is more information in forum member Air's thread linked below.

Huge Brush fire In Sylmar, Angeles Range Threatened <--- This seams to be the main thread on the subject with the most information.
http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s....php?t=1406168

Edit 3: A friend of mine talked to someone at the range. At this point it seams that no one was harmed. The main office where you check in for the rifle and pistol range was destroyed. The More and More Sporting clay buildings located behind the reloading store were destroyed. The Reloading store building is undamaged. The range will be closed for at least a few days, i would expect even longer.



Link to a Washington Post article about the fires.

Being a shooting range, a lot of the target areas can burn without causing significant structural damage. If the place is getting burned I am hoping this is more along the lines of what is happening.

If you recall Raahauge's got torched and managed to get up an running relatively quickly after despite it being more of a structural fire around their main office.

I was planning on a mid week trip next week.

But, from memory, there isn’t much there to burn. Office, maybe the shade area, but the benches are cement, and the target area is like Death Valley.

Fingers crossed.

That's bad news. I was planning to make a trip down to SoCal and visit ASR and do some shooting too. Hope the damage isn't total devastation.

The range is on fire. The office has been destroyed.

Dang, that's a shame. Hope they can rebuild and people get their Jobs back.

I prefer my private range by a large degree, but the little rimfire gallery at Angeles is a hoot.

I was literally already packed with ammo in the car, just grabbing the guns this morning, when I saw the smoke suddenly come full force my way inside of about 10 minutes, walking the hounds. Came in and checked Calguns for news if it was where I thought it might be.

Used the down-time to go to Walmart and buy ammo instead.

Terrible. That photo likely tells us there isn't much left of the stalls and benches either.

Oh man, bummer. I like going there. The steel targets are a hoot with a 10/22.
Hope everyone is ok.

Do any other ranges have similar steel set ups?

Thank you for reaching out with concern. It is appreciated!

In the spirit of helping, the following URL is a list of historic fires in the LA area. If you checkout the Bel Air fire, Topanga fire or Laurel Canyon fires, you'll find prior (1950's and 1960's) examples of catastrophic wildland/urban interface fires.
Keep in mind that our population has at least doubled since these fires, and such interfaces have become exponentially more common.

The winds the past two days while being very dry, were the biggest thing making it worse. At least it's not surplus of 100 degree temps. Other than the high winds, the 52 degree temps at night / 75 in the day, should help them get these out faster.

Let's hope, at least. Lots of really good, tough guys up there in them hills right now fighting these flames.

Very sad to see Moore and Moore destroyed. I was shooting there on Saturday. Great range and great family who owns it. I'm hoping they will rebuild quickly.
