Crest Forest Brush Engine 25
The Crest Forest (California) Fire Department is a municipal agency which operates within the San Bernadino National Forest. The lone fire station sits at an elevation of 6,000 feet and is staffed by career firefighters who operate a Class-A structural engine as well as BE25. Note: The department just returned from the "Slide Fire" where they served for nearly 10 days. The blaze took 12,759 acres and destroyed 272 homes. Nearly 1500 firefighters were assigned to the incident, which was just one of 19 that devastated Southern California last week.
