    Background: On the outskirts of Marseilles, near ???artigues - July 17 - fire troops and police fought, on a six miles front, fires that at of time threatened to destroy the villages of Carry and Sausset-le???
    Only after all-night efforts, during which flames reached within 50 yards of houses was the conflagration checked, to the great relief of the many holidaymakers in the threatened areas.

    Every year, in away hot summer weather, the dry lands and forests along the Cote d' Azur are very vulnerable to fire, and the authorities attack every outbreak with alacrity and all the force at their Command.
