Santiago Canyon Fire of 1889 - Overview

Overview

In addition to the Santiago Canyon Fire, there were several other significant fires fanned by the same gale force Santa Ana winds in San Diego and San Bernardino counties. The Santiago Canyon Fire was the largest and has been estimated as being greater than 300,000 acres (125,000 ha). Another in San Diego County has been estimated to have been greater than 60,000 acres (Halsey 2008). The Orange County fire burned through areas of chaparral and coastal sage scrub, as well as a number of farm fields in the Santa Ana Valley, where farmers attempted to control the fire by plowing ahead of it (Orange News 1889). A detailed analysis of the fire can be found in Keeley and Zedler (2009).
