September 1, 2002

An eastward shot looking into the East Fork Canyon about 4 1/2 hours after the start of the Curve Fire. According to the U.S. Forest Service, this fire was started by "candles associated with a ritual involving the use of fire and animal sacrifices." It burned over 19,000 acres and more than 70 structures were lost.
