LARGE AREA SWEPT.

FIRE FIGHTERS' BIG TASK.

ARRINO, Jan. ll.-Another seri ous fire 16 miles north-east of Ar rino swept nearly 2,000 acres yester day afternoon. The fire started in Mr. L. Neete's crop, where a tractor driven harvester was working-, a spark from which is believed to have been responsible. Helped by a strong wind and a temperature of 108 de grees, the fire was soon out of con trol and entered the adjoining pro perty. In half an hour the fire had spread over a two mile front, and gigantic flames were leaping forty feet high. Only the systematic burn ing of breaks enabled the fire fight ers to check the flames.
