Station Blaze Burns Firemen
Four Inglewood, Calif., firemen were burned, two seriously, in a freak blaze which damaged a 1924 stand-by rig in the enginehouse at 637 East Hargrave St.
The two most severely burned men were reportedly cleaning out a sediment bowl in the gasoline feed system of the reverse pumper when fuel ignited. The rig was destroyed, together with 1800 feet of hose valued at $3000. Flames also damaged the rear of the station.
