August 22, 1935: "Prompt and efficient action on the part of a forest service lookout, who went outside of his assigned duties to save the state of Oregon one of its most scenic spots was given high commendation today by V.V. Harpham, Supervisor of the Umpqua national forest. Charles Neal, lookout at Kelsay Mountain, is credited by Mr. Harpham with saving the Lemalo falls canyon of the North Umpqua river from a disastrous fire, which was started through carelessness on the part of unregistered campers. Neal spotted the smoke from the fresh fire, sent in an alarm, and then, although mindful of the fact his duties do not call for personal work in fire fighting, immediately started for the blaze, about three miles away. He ran the major portion of the way, and had the fire trenched, under control and confined to an area of about a quarter of an acre by the time men from the Diamond Lake CCC camp arrived."
