Dogwood Canyon

My sister said she heard there was a fire at Dogwood Canyon on Sunday but didn't hear how extensive it was. That is such a beautiful place, I hope it wasn't very bad. Anyone have any info on the fire?

I heard there was extensive damage to the main Lodge.

This afternoon they were also saying the fire was suspicious in nature. That is really sick! Such a beautiful place! If they do prove arson -- I hope they catch whoever started it and really let them have it!

Last I heard

The fire was the result of someone going to Dogwood canyon for help after an auto accident - no one was there, a small fire was started to keep warm, and it got out of hand and burned a garage and part of the welcome center - I think - last I heard, no one was going to press charges, as it wasn't believed to have been intentional.

Well glad to hear it wasn't intentional!

I would hate to think that someone would start something in such a beautiful area.

Thanks for the update.
