It blackened 60 acres of brush. The second exploded three miles east at Beverly Glen Blvd. and Deervale Dr. in Sherman Oaks at 2:49 p.m., seconds after firemen had halted the advance of the Laurel Canyon Blvd. fire. The third started another three miles east in the 15000 block of Meadowgate Rd. in Encino."; See images #00119010 through #00119011 for all photos in this series.
