    Background: Bush fires threatened the television tower outside Marseilles, France, July 13, after firemen battled 15 hours to keep the flames in check.

    The firefighters - including servicemen and civilian volunteers - struggled through the night, and by morning the fire seemed to be under control; then, towards noon, winds freshened and flames sprang up anew; evening saw the conflagration still spreading.

    Pine forest fires are a fairly regular summer occurrence in the Southern part of France.
