The Cost of the Malibu Canyon Fire

Oct 23, 2019

Officials estimate the cost of the Malibu Canyon (Springs) fire at $10M.  Besides the cost to the taxpayers who ultimately foot the bill, the fire decimated 28000 acres of chapparal and destroyed several public structures.  

At a time when the trails are typically lush with wildflowers and wildlife, the Sycamore Canyon trails will be closed for a few weeks while Parks and Recreation staff asses the damage, and with the help of arborists, trim any tree hazards.
