USNPS eyes rebuilding areas of Santa Monica Mountains NRA destroyed by 2018 wildfire

Parts of Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, including the Paramount Ranch, that were lost to the Woolsey Fire in 2018 would be rebuilt under a plan the National Park Service has released for comment.

The Woolsey Fire started on November 8, 2018, near the Santa Susana Field Laboratory above Simi Valley, near the boundary between Los Angeles and Ventura counties. Santa Ana winds pushed the fire in a southerly direction the first day. It then crossed the 101 Freeway between the San Fernando Valley and the Conejo Valley and headed into the Santa Monica Mountains.
