Dude Fire Remembered



A refurbished memorial was dedicated Saturday, Sept. 3 to the six firefighters who lost their lives in the Dude fire of 1990.

The memorial service had to be moved inside because of heavy monsoon rains that pelted the Bonita Creek area that afternoon.

"This memorial is very important to the people in this area," said William Glaunsinger, president of the Bonita Creek Homeowners Association. "We depend on the firefighters and each other and appreciate the sacrifices that the firefighters make to protect our community."
