Hundreds of Southern California firefighters were honored Saturday for the work, above and beyond, during the recent string of wildfires that beset the region.
The event was held in Agoura Hills and KCAL9’s Jeff Nguyen talked to firefighters and the citizens honoring them, some of them TV and movie stars and rockers. Jason Scheff from the legendary music group Chicago led an all-star band to say thank you to Southern California firefighters for their work, bravery and heroism battling the blazes.
Last November’s Woolsey Fire destroyed the Malibu Lake home belonging to actor Robert Hays of “Airplane!” fame.
Even though his house was a total loss – he wanted to be here.
