County Fire and Cal Fire are working to turn a sixth-grade camp site at the base of Palomar Mountain into a fire center to train new firefighters. May 24, a board letter from Supervisor Jim Desmond recommended the county finalize an agreement with Cal Fire to use the Camp Fox site as a wildland firefighting base.
The Camp Fox property was owned by the county but transferred to the San Diego County Office of Education in 1977. It is now transferring back to the county.
The new Fox Fire Center is already being updated by Cal Fire....
