Photograph was edited for publication purposes
Photograph caption dated July 29, 1955 reads, "Tongues of flame lick tinder dry brush in Sepulveda Canyon south of the tunnel as the stubborn blaze rages over 300 acres in the main Valley to West Los Angeles highways. Columns of smoke from the raging fire were visible throughout the Valley as an off-shore breeze blew a haze of ashes into Valley skies."; See images #00143204 through #00143205 for all photos in this series.
