The Bobcat Fire erupted Sept. 6 in the Angeles National Forest, scorching 115,796 acres and destroying 170 structures, including 87 residences and the Nature Center at the Devil’s Punchbowl Natural Area.

The fire also nearly burned down the Mt. Wilson Observatory. It damaged another 47 other structures, including 28 residences and also took about eight weeks to fully contain. The cause is still under investigation.

The Lake Fire, which broke out Aug. 12 near Lake Hughes, burned 31,089 acres and destroyed or damaged more than 18 structures and 21 out buildings before being 100% contained more than a month later.
