A youth, severely burned by a spray of hot gasoline, was listed in serious condition Monday at San Bernardino County Medical Center. Tim Harrison, 17, of Norco was trying to start a car Saturday by pouring gasoline into its carburetor while a friend turned the ignition key, said Herb Jewell, Norco fire chief. The carburetor backfired, spaying the hot fuel over Harrison's chest, abdomen, back and right arm. He suffered second- and third-degree burns over 45% of his body, Jewell said.

A brush fire fanned by Santa Ana winds gusting to 50 m.p.h. burned to within 10 feet of homes in Norco before firefighters and residents managed to douse the flames. The fire, which seared 320 acres in Norco and Riverside, began on a brushy hillside just east of Crestlawn Memorial Park in Riverside. By the time firefighters from Norco and Riverside County arrived, flames were sweeping over the hills separating the two cities and threatening homes along Crestview Drive in Norco.

The state Forestry Department wants to designate about half of the city a "very high fire-hazard severity zone." City government, however, wants to avoid that tag, saying that it might unduly increase insurance for many homeowners. "I believe we can achieve the same result without this designation," City Manager Fred Maley told the City Council Tuesday night. "This city, in good faith, can get an exemption."

The City Council this week voted 4-1 to proceed with the second phase of a study to determine whether the Orange County Fire Department should be contracted to provide fire services for Buena Park. The second half of the study, which will take about three months to complete but will not cost the city any money, should address personnel-related issues and the disposition of city fire stations, apparatus and tools and equipment, said Fire Chief Herb Jewell.

Because Orange County Fire Department crews worked long hours last week battling the Laguna Beach blaze, officials have delayed completing a study to determine if Buena Park should contract fire services with the county. "Due to the fire, the study stopped because all the firemen were involved in the fire," Mayor Arthur C. Brown said. "It will take us longer to get the report. It makes things last a little longer, but a two-week, three-week or month delay won't make any difference."
