Armada of boaters assist effort to fight Woolsey Fire
The Woolsey Fire burned through more than 97,000 acres of land during the early and middle portion of November, according to CalFire. Fire officials estimated nearly the fire, one of the largest in California history, destroyed 500 structures.
A group of boaters helps in the firefighting effort. Volunteer boaters from Del Rey Landing in Marina del Rey loaded their respective vessels with supplies on Nov. 14 and navigated toward the western edge of Malibu and Los Angeles County, where they would meet firefighters. Included within the armada were tenders of megayachts docked at Del Rey Landing and other local vessels
The armada’s efforts were amplified as Pacific Coast Highway in and out of the Malibu area was closed.
Recovery efforts from the Woolsey Fire will certainly take some time, but firefighters and locals certainly received a helping hand from Del Rey Landing and Marina del Rey boaters.
