Fairmount Canyon Fire, October 2019, P.C. Ken Burkhart

We all remember the terrifying brush fire that raged in Fairmont Canyon on October 15, 2019. It presumably started in a homeless encampment somewhere off Aldine. If the winds had been blowing west, not east, our Kensington canyons and potentially our homes would have been in peril. That’s why Kensington community members take fire safety seriously. It could happen any time.

Kensington Fire Safe is a community organization under the umbrella Fire Safe Council San Diego County. We are an IRS approved 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Our mission is to educate Kensington neighbors about fire safety and encourage each other to make our homes fire safe through brush clearing and fire-resistant landscaping.

Kensington Fire Safe is a grateful recipient of a grant from SDG&E and the San Diego Regional Fire Foundation. This grant will fund our fall and spring Dumpathons. EDCO also donates dumpsters for these events. Thank you!
