Hundreds of firefighters have gathered for an informal memorial for two of their comrades killed in the large fire burning north of Los Angeles.
With heads bowed, the firefighters listened solemnly Friday at the fire's command center as commanders and others recalled the lives of Capt. Tedmund Hall and Specialist Arnaldo Quinones.
The men were killed Sunday when their engine truck plunged 800 feet down a steep mountainside while they were searching for an escape route.
A formal memorial will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 12 at Dodger Stadium.
