The 2002 Curve Fire
The Hawkins loop hike covered a lot of area that was burned over by a large fire in 2002 known as the Curve Fire. The fire was allegedly started by “candles associated with a ritual involving the use of fire and animal sacrifices” according to the USFS.
Not only did it burn a large amount of land, but I believe closed the 2 and 39 highways for long periods. Additional info.
