Fire Captain Tedmund "Ted" Hall, 47, and Fire Fighter
Specialist Arnaldo "Arnie" Quinones, 34, were killed
in the line of duty on Sunday, August 30, during the
Station Fire. Their emergency response vehicle went over
the side of the road and fell 800 feet into a steep canyon
during fire suppression activities protecting Camp 16 on
Mount Gleason outside the City of Palmdale.
These men died a courageous death and as a testament to
their lives and the life of any firefighter, this issue of the
County DIGEST is dedicated to their memory. This is the
story of Ted and Arnie.
