Long Description:
When the ash and smoke settled in July of 1988, the Report was grim: 15 Homes, 42 outbuildings, 40 vehicles, and one bridge were destroyed in the Westberry Trails fire. The fighters stopped flames that were within 500 feet of another 440 homes and outbuildings. The arsonist who started the fire has never been caught.
