o   McKenzie Fire Camp:  The first “fire camp” in Fresno County was established along the old SJ&E railroad line between Millerton and Hurley on property now owned by the Sierra Conservancy at the McKenzie Table Mountain Preserve. It was opened in the early 1930’s and remained in service until 1948 when the Hurley Fire Station was opened.

o   Copper Peak Lookout: Located on Owens Mountain above the east end of rural Clovis and closed in 1980. It burned down in 1985.
