Charles Morton, 39, died on Sept. 17 while fighting the El Dorado Fire in the San Bernardino National Forest about 75 miles (120 kilometers) east of Los Angeles.Morton, was a 14-year veteran of the U.S. Forest Service and a squad boss with the Big Bear Interagency Hotshot Crew of the San Bernardino National Forest. “Charlie is survived by his wife and daughter, his parents, two brothers, cousins, and friends. He’s loved and will be missed. May he rest easy in heaven with his baby boy,” Morton’s family said in a statement. Twenty-six people have been killed in wildfires across California. Officials were investigating the death Morton on the El Dorado fire that erupted earlier this month from a smoke-generating pyrotechnic device used by a couple to reveal their baby’s gender. Nearly 19,000 firefighters in California are currently battling 27 major blazes, Gov. Gavin Newsom said. At least 7,900 wildfires have erupted in the state this year, many during a mid-August barrage of dry lightning that ignited parched vegetation. ===========================================================Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
