This photo shows the wide front of the Santa Monica Mountains fire advancing with deadly intensity through the brush-covered hills toward the palatial Darmocrest estate in Rustic Canyon on November 24, 1938. Searing the beautiful mountain ridges and mercilessly destroying hundreds of homes, the fire is raging undiminished. Hundreds of persons have been made homeless, and property damage is going over the 1-1/2 million dollar mark.
