    Background: A huge forest fire raging out of control north of San Francisco is giving fire-fighters a difficult time. The site is one of the most beautiful stretches of natural wilderness on the Pacific Coast, the Big Sur country. But it's virtually inaccessible, and the fire-fighters are having to combat the flames with hand-operated equipment.

    When filmed yesterday (Wednesday), the fire was advancing along a six-mile front. There's little property in the area. But several hundred campers had to be evacuated -- and it is thought that the blaze may have been caused by an illegal camp fire. Twelve-hundred men are fighting the flames.
