The Orange County Sheriff's Department SWAT team is responding to reports of gunshots in Silverado Canyon. Authorities were flooded with reports of gunshots from residents in the Jackson Ranch area of Silverado at about 10:55 a.m., Lt. Dan Dwyer said. No suspects or specific location for the gunshots have been identified, he said. Authorities have closed down about a three-mile stretch of Santiago Canyon Road between Silverado Canyon Road and Modjeska Canyon Road. “It's going to be a long search,” Dwyer said.

Silverado Canyon volunteer firefighters will hold an Easter pancake breakfast in an effort to raise money to replace equipment lost during last year's blaze at their fire station. Though the county plans to rebuild the badly damaged station later this year, volunteer firefighters must purchase some of the equipment that was destroyed in the fire. About $800 in supplies and cash was raised earlier this year at a chili cookout attended by more than 400 residents of the mountain community.

The morning talk on Wildcat Canyon Road has turned from rattlesnakes to tarantulas. Neighbors stand in the shade of the oaks and sycamores that arch over the cul-de-sac. It's an impromptu gathering on a summer day when there is no great rush to be at work. Summer, they say, is snake season, which overlaps tarantula season in the fall. Already, tarantula hawks - the orange-winged wasps that capture the spiders to feed their larva - are out hunting. One resident, Steve Kerrigan, has lived on this road for 14 years; another, Chay Peterson, for 25 years.

It's been more than six weeks since Silverado Canyon's fire station was badly damaged by flames. Though the charred debris remains, firefighters housed in a large tent next door showed last week that operations are returning to normal. Rains raised danger signs in the tightknit mountain community, where five residents died during the devastating floods and mudslides of 1969.

Two bikers who got lost on separate cycling trips Sunday afternoon spent much of the night together before being found by an Orange County sheriff's deputy early Monday, officials said. The two lost cyclers--Mike Landers, 22, of Irvine and Jeffrey Mark Sada, 30, of Long Beach--encountered each other deep in Silverado Canyon late Sunday, and made it to within a mile of the canyon's road Monday morning when they were found by the deputy.

While much of fire-ravaged Southern California lurched back toward an uneasy routine Friday and government officials made preparations for a long recovery, firefighters poised for another late-night stand against a persistent blaze in the rugged mountains of eastern Orange County. Even as thousands of residents joyously returned to neighborhoods throughout the region, 100-foot-tall flames from the Santiago fire burned into the eastern end of Silverado Canyon.

Flagging down a ride in Silverado Canyon, an Orange County sheriff's spokesman stumbled upon thousands of dollars in cash, a fully loaded weapon and two "persons of interest" in the investigation of a large marijuana farm nearby. "It was unbelievable," said Jim Amormino, the spokesman, not a sworn officer. One of the men, Ruben Aguilar, 39, was later booked at Orange County Jail on suspicion of misdemeanor possession of a loaded firearm. Officials did not release the other man's name.

The boulder that killed 16-year-old Caitlin Oto last February still lies in her bedroom above the Shadybrook Country Store in Silverado Canyon. Splintered wood and shattered glass litter the ground. Other than a sign out front that warns "Danger: Keep Out," the store in the Santa Ana Mountains remains largely unchanged since last year's mudslides. But neighbors say nothing else has been the same.

Things start to look different after you pass the road to the dump. Bald eagles and red-tailed hawks circle brush-covered hills and meadows littered with red boulders. The orange glow from city streetlights fades as an unlit two-lane highway winds east toward Silverado and Modjeska canyons in the Santa Ana Mountains. Some houses teeter on hillsides, others are hidden behind sprawling oak trees. Many who live here still heat their homes with wood-burning stoves and draw water from wells.

A 16-year-old who apparently lost control of his car on Santiago Canyon Road and crashed into another, killing two young men, was described Wednesday as a Boy Scout, a varsity swimmer and water polo player and "an excellent student in the top five in his class," his high school principal said. The teen-ager, Steve Kehlet of Santa Ana, "had a grade-point average above 4.0 and had no record whatsoever of any problems," said Jim Ryan, principal at Foothill High School. "Everyone is shocked by this."

Rick Rogers, 36, of Laguna Hills suffered only minor injuries to one leg and did not require hospitalization, county Sheriff's Lt. Larry Abbott said. After a day of hunting, Rogers was hiking down a mountainside about 3 miles up the canyon from the Silverado Canyon Road gate when he became stranded on a cliff as night fell, officials said.
