Description
Photograph was edited for publication purposes
Photograph caption dated March 17, 1964 reads, "Flames completely hide what is left of an $85,000 home in process of destruction. The Spanish hacienda-type house was in the 1800 block of Hillcrest Drive in Glendale. Firemen spray power pole to prevent transformer 'blowup.'" The article partially reads, "Gov. Edmund G. Brown today declared fire-ravaged sections of Burbank, Glendale and Eagle Rock a disaster area, paving the way for the federal government to issue a similar declaration to seek federal assistance if necessary...The first report came about 6 a.m. yesterday from the Whiting Woods district in Glendale, east of the Verdugo Hills. That fire rapidly spread over the hills and was soon threatening homes in Burbank and other parts of Glendale."; See images #00117486 through #00117495 for all photos in this series.
