Photograph caption dated September 12, 1956 reads, "Fifty-year-old eucalyptus trees, planted as a windbreak in early ranching days, are saved by San Fernando firemen who doused flames in branches. The flames swept into the lower branches of the trees from dry grass close to a new subdivision within Los Angeles city limits. Fire was on former site of Porter-Christian Ranch."
