September 20, 1967: "The Sundance Mountain lookout tower, near where the huge Sundance forest fire started, is ringed by scorched earth and charred trees. One official of the Priest Lake Timber Protective Association, which owns the tower, said the fact it didn't burn was a 'miracle.' It was in front of this tower, on the upper side of the fire, that the station lookout and an association crew built a fire line in an effort to save the tower. When the wind-whipped fire became too hot the men removed valuable equipment from the tower and it was evacuated. Retardant was dropped later near the tower. Traces of the red-dyed retardant were still evident yesterday." (The Chronicle) caption with the above photo.
