Corralitas Drive: LAFD Planning Ahead

Photo: Corralitas Drive Neighbor, June 6, 2017.  A neighbor encountered LAFD firefighters walking Corralitas Drive as he squeezed his car through the narrow passage on the first curve of Corralitas Drive.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)

Two firefighters told the neighbor, they were making a game plan in case of another fire.  Both were among the nearly 200 firefighters who fought the June 19, 2016 Silver Lake Fire.  They would also look into the lack of brush clearance on the Red Car Property.

Corralitas Drive is a substandard Hillside street with blind hairpin curves and only one means of vehicle access.  It's also a Red Flag Day No Parking Street.  We can only hope they witnessed the parking scofflaws who routinely block the hydrant at the last blind hairpin turn.
