I second Detractor's comments. There is a very good chance that the cabin was intentionally burned down by the Park Service. During the 1990's, the BLM, particularly the Ridgecrest Field Office, illegally and secretly bulldozed and burned down literally dozens of desert backcountry cabins until they started getting caught, and some even bragged about it.
Land management agencies consider such backcountry cabins to be a pain in the butt for many reasons, none of which I agree with. I consider it more likely that George's place was torched by NPS than by vandels or natural occurances. And given DVNP rules, it can never be rebuild, and if it is, it will be simply torned down or torched again.
