Tedmund Hall, who lived in San Bernardino County, had been with the department for 26 years. Specialist Arnaldo Quinones, of Palmdale, had been with the department for eight years. Their vehicle was "overrun by a fast-moving fire which approached Fire Camp 16 on the Station Fire incident,'' said a statement from L.A. County fire. Funeral arrangements are pending.
