Dangers & Annoyances

Forest fires are an ever-present danger all over Southern California – a truth Laguna Beach knows too well, after fires large and small over the years. The canyons act like chimneys and small grass fires can quickly become infernos. Use extreme caution when lighting matches and don’t toss your cigarette butts – extinguish them with water or dirt, and once they’re completely out, dispose of them properly.
