Comments

It was located near "the Gap" in the Hammond Big Lagoon woods. It was later taken out in pieces and sold. Much of the logging area covered by the fire had bridges and trestles destroyed. When Hammond re-tooled after this fire, they switched to large off-highway trucks to carry their logs to a re-load to rail area at Crannell. This was later changed to eliminate rail as the highway took their beach rail right-of-way for a new freeway in about 1956.
