"It took three days to clean up," said Alexandra Picavet, a spokeswoman for the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, which oversees Ocean Beach. "We had volunteers come in over the weekend to help clean up all the beach debris, but it also took 21 hours for our crews to clear it." Listen, people. Well, specifically people who set Christmas trees on fire at Ocean Beach. You can't create a mess and then not clean it up. Officials say that after the annual Post Yule Pyre, 100 burned trees were recovered from the beach and another 400 were picked up along the dunes and in parking lots.
