A palm tree bursts into flames over a structure near the entrance to the historic Adamson House in Malibu during the devastating "Old Topanga Fire" of November 1993. Fortunately, the Adamson House escaped damage from the fire. The house was built by the Rindge family for their daughter Rhoda and her husband Merritt Huntley Adamson in 1929. The building became a California Historical Landmark in 1985.
