Malibu Sues Over Camping-Fire Link

New, 2 comments

Following last year's Corral Canyon fire, started by a lethal combination of marshmallows, beer and firewood, Malibu is now suing the California Coastal Commission over rules regarding camping."The Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy wants to amend Malibu's coastal program to continue allowing overnight camping. But city officials say the conservancy's plan doesn't consider fire safety." California Coastal Commission Executive Director Peter Douglas tells the Malibu Times' Jonathan Friedman that there is "no basis for a lawsuit." [Daily News/Malibu Times]
