Fire Destroys Latex Plant
A fast-moving fire raged through a building of the Golden State Latex and Rubber Co. in Lennox, Calif., on Dec. 21, completely destroying the structure in less than half an hour.
Four Los Angeles County fire companies under command of Asst. Chief Harvey W. Crutchfield finally controlled the blaze despite intense heat and windfanned flames.
Source of the fire was not immediately determined.
Damage was expected to reach $100,000.
One county fireman, Cyril Jenkins, was hurt by a falling timber and treated at Tri-City Emergency Hospital.
