Roll of Honor

Crewman
Age: 21
Year of Death: 1966

James Moreland

On November 1, 1966, the El Cariso Hotshots were trapped by flames as they worked on a steep hillside in Pacoima Canyon on the Angeles National Forest. Ten members of the crew, including Crewman James Moreland, perished on the Loop Fire that day. Another two members succumbed from burn injuries in the following days.

This firefighter line of duty fatality occurred before the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial was built in Emmitsburg, Maryland. While this firefighter has not been officially honored at the Memorial site, there are plans to do so when resources are available.
