Appleton Post-Crescent (Newspaper) - October 15, 1959, Appleton, Wisconsin APPLETON POST CRESCENT VOL.LINo.95 APPLETON-NEENAH-MENASHA, WIS., THURSDAY, OCTOBER ASSOCIATED PRESS WIRE SERVICE Price Seven Cents Fire Checked Near Los Angeles Suburb 3 Families Forced to Flee Homes (Picture on Page 2) Los foothill brush fire burned to within 100 yards of a group of homes near suburban Altadena today but a massed array of pumper trucks succeeded in checking the flames. Three families were evacu- ated temporarily, but barring the unexpected, firemen said the threat to Altadena was more potential than immedi- ate. x Meanwhile the -3.200-acre fire, completely out of control for the second day, burned most furiously along a four-j mile front on its northeast' edge. This front is in a wilder- ness area of Angeles Na- tional forest in the San Gabriel' mountains, far from any structures. j It was burning toward les Crest highway. It wasj alongside this highway, lowerj in the hills, that the fire start- ed from a carelessly flipped cigaret. College Evacuated Last night, to the west on thei opposite side of Los Angeles', another brush fire flared brief- ly. It was near Mount St. Mary's college m the Santa Monica mountains. The col- lege was evacuated as a pre- cautionary measure, but the blaze was contained before doing any damage. It charred acres. Fifteen hundred men and 18 tanker planes, dropping fire retarding borate solution, fought the Angeles forest blaze. Control still was a question mark. "It looks like it'll take a couple of days at least. We haven't had much ram at all the last few years and I've never seen thc brush so dry. "This stuff doesn't burn it explodes."

He abandoned it on a .desert- ed road near a canal separat- ing Plaque'mines and Jeffer- son parishes. "When I parked I made her get out of the car with he said. "I told her to be qui- et.
