CALIFORNIA'S fires, already
covering more than 20,000 acres,
posed the greatest danger to
populated areas, watershed and
timber forests.
In a summer of severe drought,
lightning storms had ignited
hundreds of blazes in northern

"I HAVE HAD to make some
decisions today that were not
easy to make, but were essen-.
tial to protect a high priority
watershed," said fire boss My-
ron Lee. "This action could con-
ceivably double the size of the
fire."
The watershed purified water
and protects against mudslides
for Monterey and other Carmel
Valley communities. The fire al-

worth $150 million.
The steep timberland, in the
Los Padres National Forest, was
so rugged that some crews were
being supplied by pack mule.
IN THE NORTHEAST corner
of the state, meanwhile, there
were several big fires - one of
them burning over 80,000 acres.
They were defying normal pat-
terns and burning over lava beds
