Description: The historic Bel Air fire of 1961 was not unusually large or fast-moving, nor was it a disaster for the native chaparral ecosystem. Yet it was disastrous for residents of the area, a consequence of unrestricted urban development in the chaparral of Southern California. Its costs included human suffering and financial loss from the destruction of 484 of 2,300 homes.
