Rising Humidity Reduces Fire Hazards in North I By Associ j Fires which raged in Pacific coast i timber lands for the past week an- j peared Kenerally under control today | a.s rising humidity and lower tern* peratures reduced hazznrds, but a lai'Ke scale brush and grass fire was spreading unchecked in Fresno county. More than 30,000 acres have been burned over in the expanding Fresno county fire, forestry officials said, the flames advancing on a 10-mile front north of Coalinga and heading for San TSenito county. A fire which devastated -10.000 acres of timber and brush in Lake county, was checked after damaging 7nining and resort properties and the Salvation Army's Youth Camp. Slate foresters of Oregon and atcd Preps western Washington ordered logging operations resumed as fire danger receded before rising humidity. Flames which destroyed 15 sections of second growth timber in Kittltas county, central Washington, broke out of the fire line for the third time last night but it was hoped to bring the blaze under control within 24 hours if showers, which have been forecast, appear. Widespread rains aided materially in checking all fires in Oregon and State Forester N. S. Rogers said the critical situation which had been one of the worst in Oregon history was greatly improved. A force of 200 men continued to combat a 1000 acre fire near Mitchell, Ore., although the blaze appeared under control. Potato Carlots Cut to 36,000 Pounds Kern County Potato Growers Association received word today from the Office of Defense Transportation stating that their request for the change of the minimum carlot to 30,000 pounds will become effective October 1, 1U44, according to Sid J!. Carnine, manager of the association. The minimum carlot, which has been established at 45,000 pounds, is too heavy and has caused a considerable loss to the growers because of bruising, Mr. Cur/lino explained. This order will be effective on shipments originating in the states of California, Oregon and Washington, and will expire on January 111, 1945.
