Mr. Hansbrough had parked a car near a feed store across the street from the lumber yard. "Then all of sudden the whole thing puffed out and broke through," he said. Several bystanders went to the lumber yard and moved equipment out. They were forced to give up the rescue effort because of the heat. The entire west side of the building was ablaze when the firemen arrived. Besides their problem with the three filling stations, the firemen had ,to throw in a water barrier between the McCullough fire and the Fullerton Lumber Company yard, which is a block to the east. They were afraid that sparks might set it on fire. The heat caused the blacktop! pavement to bubble. Two trees near the building were set blazing. The firm is owned by E. A. Martin of 1339 E.
