Some of the Fireful of Fear ceramics in the canyons of Malibu, CA were (wild)fired in the Woolsey Fire of November 2018. They had been in the landscape for ten years. The Woolsey Fire affected 96,949 acres of land, destroyed 1,643 structures, killed three people, and prompted the evacuation of more than 295,000 people. In February 2019 Catherine Wagley wrote about Fireful of Fear and these recent developments for Los Angeles Magazine.
