Most teens would return to school after a three-week break with sour faces and complaints about homework, book reports and pop quizzes.

The sooty stone chimneys standing like cemetery markers for the 300 homes that just a few days ago lined Hook Creek Road couldn't have conveyed the message more poignantly. "This is one of the places that probably should never have been built," said San Bernardino County Supervisor Dennis Hansberger, who toured the Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear resort communities Thursday. "I've always felt that if a fire ever came to Hook Creek, it could be a disaster."

Ralph Wagner edges his boat around Lake Arrowhead's shallow rim and grimaces. In this privately owned playground of wealthy lowlanders and retirees, hundreds of boat docks are high and dry in the muck. On the north shore's exclusive coves, the lushly landscaped mansions sit far from the water's edge, their forlorn piers ringed by sprouting marsh grass.

While thousands of neighbors fled the burning mountains around him, Scott Garrett ignored a mandatory evacuation order to try to save his 6,000-square-foot home on a hillside west of Lake Arrowhead. Inside: a stash of movie memorabilia, including a large winged angel statue from the Ben Affleck movie "Daredevil" and a costume from "Planet of the Apes." Garrett, 48, a semiretired movie studio art department technician, filled large buckets with water and sprayed his wood deck with fire retardant.

Their mission was to save Arrowbear. And although the winds had flagged Wednesday, the flames that roared out of the backcountry continued their march toward the hamlet in the San Bernardino Mountains, testing the tools, backs and lungs of the Big Bear Hot Shots, a frontline Forest Service crew that fights fires by hand. When things got desperate, when all the hoeing and shoveling could not stop the fire's advance, the team called in Chris Ivey and his dead buddy's bulldozer.

At first glance, the Lake Arrowhead of alpine villas, ski boats and postcard vistas seems to have escaped the ravages of the recent wildfires. But travel past the numerous roadblocks and the torched landscapes along the highways twisting "up the hill," as residents say, and it becomes clear that the mountain community did not survive the blaze unscathed. "Nothing is normal. Even if it looks normal.

J. Putnam Henck, who built Santa's Village in the 1950s on family land near Lake Arrowhead and was the owner-operator of the elfin theme park during its final two decades, has died. He was 91. Henck died Jan. 15 of kidney failure at his home in Skyforest, said his daughter, Pam Thompson. The year that he was born -- 1918 -- his parents paid $10,000 for 440 acres in the San Bernardino Mountains, planning to build a resort. After his family moved to Skyforest in 1923, his father became a pioneering developer and his mother opened Lake Arrowhead's first school.
