Spared

All of these buildings were threatened by the recent wildfires. The fire burned literally within inches of several sites.

These are some of the very few remaining historic sites that survive; we lost a tremendous number of historic resources in this disaster and we must do whatever we can to protect the last vestiges of San Diego's backcountry heritage.

Without proper steps being taken to survey, document, and provide adequate protection these sites could well become victims of the next fire.
