On July 8, 2013, the Chariot wildfire raged through the Al Bahr Shrine Camp destroying 150 structures, devastating the Al Bahr Campground, infrastructure, and community. The fire originated from the desert floor near Butterfield Ranch and blazed through a chimney canyon before reaching the Al Bahr Campground, located in Mount Laguna in the Cleveland National Forrest. The Al Bahr camp is steeped in decades of tradition, community, and lasting memories passed through several generations of Shriners.
Among the structures burned was the Shrine Lodge, an 87-year-old meeting place where generations of Shriners met, held ceremonies, and practiced common values of caring for children and members of their community.
Gomez Trial Attorneys filed suit against the U.S. Government and Chrysler on behalf of Al Bahr Shriners, and over 110 cabin owners, to recover monetary damages.
