Marble Cone Fire, 1977

Fred Nason Jr., Marcus Rudnick and Fred Nason Sr. on the Nason property in the Chews Ridge area while fighting the Marble Cone Fire in Big Sur on August 5, 1977.  The Marble-Cone Fire was a wildland fire which burned for three weeks in August, 1977 in the Big Sur high country. By the time it was extinguished, it had burned about 178,000 acres in the Santa Lucia Mountains, known as the Ventana Wilderness, making it the largest wildfire in recorded California history at that time.
