ENID, Okla. -- His hands felt like they were in an oven. He didn't feel much else, though his body was charred from his forehead to his knees. The flash roiled from an oil tank, spewing a ball of savage fire that swallowed Greg Walton and three other field hands, then recoiled into the tank as fast as it attacked. He saw nothing but yellow. The cotton T-shirt disintegrated off his back as the explosive fumes sent him running.

Search teams combed mountain terrain for a 12-year-old Boy Scout who disappeared after lunch Saturday during a Greensboro troop outing in the Blue Ridge Parkway. Searchers found part of his mess kit less than a mile away. Searchers spread out from the trail into rugged terrain but were narrowing their search at night because of the risks involved, authorities said. The broader search was to resume at today. A helicopter with a body heat sensor was assisting.

Sylvester Stallone was in his Rambo get-up, seated on the steps of his trailer in afternoon heat of 120-plus. It was a curious image: Instead of brandishing his glistening "survival" knife, Stallone was wielding a fly swatter. Never missing a beat during an interview, he idly swatted at flies that landed on his pants and bare chest. And he whapped at flies that settled on the khaki-clad legs of the interviewer alongside him. "Did you meet this one?," Stallone said.

On the shade inside his bathroom door, Mickey Rourke has scribbled his warrior credo. "I must be mentally and physically prepared so defeat does not exist in my mind and body. Shadow box in a mirror 30 minutes a day. Movement is concentrated. Positive attitude to survive and be as good as I can possibly be. No excuses for laziness. And no second chance again."
TRAVEL

In her On The Spot column on Aug. 31 ["Flier Frostbite"], Catharine Hamm describes sitting on a flight listening to Motown sounds of the '70s: "You're doing nothing but losing body heat and killing brain cells with bad music." That kisses off landmark albums by Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder and such classic singles as Diana Ross' "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," the Temptations' "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone" and the Commodores' "Easy." I'm glad Hamm is a travel writer and not a music critic.
