Historic Fire in 2007

On May 10, 2007, a major fire started at Catalina Island, north of the city of Avalon near a radio transmission facility.

Over 4,750 acres were burned and the fire destroyed much of the electrical infrastructure that delivered power from SCE’s Pebbly Beach Generating Station to Catalina’s inland communities.

The cause of the fire was never truly isolated.

Firebreaks were carved into the mountainsides
