Raging Forest Fire Hits 5 Communities
By DEL MILLER
CALISTOGA, Calif. (AP)- A wild forest fire burned uncontrolled into Calistoga, today, destroying at least 35 homes and wafting up hot ash that ignited fires in five nearby communities.
* The fire, which turned on this Napa Valley resort town late Sunday when 70 mile-an-
hour winds changed direction, at one time surrounded Calistoga on three sides, Police Chief Kenneth Hively said.
More than half the town’s 2,-500 residents and tourists had been evacuated, police said. There were no immediate reports of casualties.
Mayor Herbert Hanley said Gov. Edmund G. Brown was
asked to declare the Napa Valley fire scene a disaster area, making federal aid available. Hanley said damages were expected to be in the millions of dollars.
Many residents refused evacuation, braving the incendiary ash to try and save their homes.
More than 500 firefighters from surrounding towns in the Napa Valley wind belt poured into Calistoga to aid.
Hively said an official count showed 35 buildings—including I the historic Tubbs Mansion, a Calistoga landmark — were burned. But there were unconfirmed reports that as many as sn homes had been burned.
Burning ash from the fire — visible more than 40 miles away—touched off other fires.
Calistoga police said fires had been reported on the outskirts of Napa, 30 miles south of Calistoga; in Stonecrest, near Napa; in the towns of Rutherford and Angwin to the east,

Stucki Tavern Bond Is Posted
2 Of Woman's Sons Arrested
GROUND BREAKING. Gov. James A. Rhodes broke ground Saturday for a new Ohio Highway Patrol Academy near the state fairgrounds in Columbus. At left is Warren C. Nelson, director of the Department of Highway Safety, and ot right is Col. Anson B. Cook, patrol superintendent. The academy is slated for completion in July, 1965. (AP Wirephoto).
Just before noon Saturday, Franz Stucki made the deadline for posting the $3,000 bond needed to keep his tavern open in Dover.
Common Pleas Judge J. H. Lamneck last week permitted Stucki to continue operation of the tavern if he would post the bond on or before Sept. 19. The judge had issued a temporary injunction against the tavern, pending a final hearing on the permanent injunction asked by the County Prosecutor, Harlan Spies.
The final hearing will not take place until after Sept. 26, by which time the co-defendants in the injunction suit, Gust Lam-bros and John Stucki, must file an answer with the court.
Stucki’s license from the State Liquor Permit Division expires Sept. 27. Allen Miller, division chief, last week indicated that the license would not be renewed pending outcome of the permanent injunction action.
