Two fires--one of them accidentally ignited by a brush-clearing crew--blackened about 25 acres Monday in Sun Valley and Calabasas before being extinguished by scores of firefighters, authorities said. The largest of the fires, which started about 2:20 p.m. at Wentworth Street and Stonehurst Avenue, burned about 20 acres of brush and grass south of Hansen Dam and east of Hansen Dam Golf Course, Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Bob Collins said. It was put out in about half an hour.

The land around Jon Morris' home has returned to life: poppies, irises, wildflowers and grasses bloom on once-blackened hillsides. Four months ago, a firestorm passed by Morris' home as it raced through the hills of Malibu and Calabasas. As the flames bore down, Morris, a veteran of four other brush fires, stood his ground.

The city of Calabasas has established its onramp to the Information Superhighway with the launch of an official site on the World Wide Web--making information about the city available at the click of a mouse. The new web site will be a place for Calabasas residents to find information about city services, city council meetings and recreational activities available to them, said City Channel Manager Deborah Steller, who will maintain the site.

The Calabasas Emergency Response Program, formed soon after the Northridge earthquake, has made strides in preparing residents for disasters. But after two years of work, its volunteers realized they should not restrict their efforts to those who live in Calabasas. "We had everything covered, but then thought, what happens if the emergency occurs during the day and suddenly we have all these people here who work in Calabasas and suddenly become a part of Calabasas?"

Eager to show the state's gratitude, Gov. Pete Wilson on Tuesday presented special service medals at the hospital bedsides of three firefighters injured in the Calabasas-Malibu brush fire last week. The governor, who spent several minutes with each of the heavily bandaged firefighters still recovering at the Grossman Burn Center at Sherman Oaks Hospital, presented them with the Governor's Fire Service Award.

Allen Emerson's phone is ringing nonstop. His scanner is spurting static and his two-way radio emits a garbled voice. Outside, a Fire Department helicopter flying low through Cold Canyon compounds the din. For this one morning, Emerson's bedroom in a rustic Cold Canyon home has become "Arson Watch base," as in, "Calling Arson Watch base, do you copy?" And still wearing his pajama bottoms, Emerson, a former restaurateur, has become the frenetic commander of a battalion of volunteers.

Residents living downwind of the Rancho Las Virgenes Composting Facility got a lesson in bio-solids composting as officials tried to assure them the facility is safe, despite sometimes noxious odors. The Monday night community meeting, called by the Las Virgenes Municipal Water District, was held to try to allay fears generated by claims from a former composting plant employee who said he was made ill by pathogens and airborne bacteria. The employee also claimed the community is at risk.

Calabasas residents climbed on the playground equipment, rode their bicycles and held an impromptu roller hockey game at the Juan Bautista de Anza park--the city's newest venue for fun. Under construction for nearly a year, the facility opened to the public last week. It is the first major park built by the young city and visitors said it was a welcome addition to the neighborhood.
