Press-Telegram (Newspaper) - October 17, 1959, Long Beach, California WORLD MOURNING GEN. MARSHALL Blaze Rages Unchecked in Fifth Day Flames Within Half Mile of Homes1 in Big .Tujunga Area LOS ANGELES upexpected calm held a pall of smoke over a hungry brush fire north of Los Angeles today. Firefighters took advantagi of the lull in winds to built up a two-mile fire line in the northwest section of I he blaze. Although the Weather Bu reau had forecast brisk winds today, they failed to mate rialize. THE FIRE has claimed I life and 13 injuries. And there was no prospect of immediate control. It all started, officials be lieve, when somebody care- lessly flipped a cigarette. Much of the force of men was concentrated on the north front of the fire. No buildings had been destroyed in this area, but flames were near a camp grounds. In Big Tujunga Canyon, north of the community of Tujunga, the fire was within a half mile of homes in La Paloma Flats. Residents of this small settlement had been evacuated Thursday night and were still out early today. :ON THE EASTERN front, the fire was within a mile of a Nike missile base con- trol center on Mount Disap- pointment. But officials felt it "would be unnecessary to pull out equipment. The site is surrounded by a rocky area almost clear of brush. La Canada, Altadcna and other communities south and southeast of the fire were out of danger, but the Forest Service said increased winds could put them in peril again. .Leo Poblano, 50, a Zuni' Indian from Zuni, N. M., was: killed when a plane acciden-! tally dropped a load of fire-1 fighting chemicals on him and four other fire-fighters.1 The others were injured.
