SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif. (KGO) -- Residents of Scotts Valley know Sky Park as a place with playgrounds, a soccer field, a library, a seniors center. It used to be an old airport. But, since the CZU Lightning Complex Fire started, it's been home to a massive CAL FIRE base camp.
The site -- a 24/7 operation of trailers, fire trucks, dining halls and medical facilities -- is meant to support a tireless crew fighting the largest wildfire in Santa Cruz County's history.
