Shortly after the CIF Southern Section 4-A Division final last year, hurdler Shonna Bernard of Nogales High in La Puente had an important decision to make. Bernard had finished second in the 300-meter low hurdles to earn a berth in the Masters Meet--the Southern Section's state qualifying meet--the following week. But that was also the same time the Nogales marching band was heading to Taiwan for an international band competition. Bernard plays the flute in the band.

An explosion in the tomato-ripening section of a packing house leveled much of the building and critically injured one man Thursday night. "There was no fire. We know ethylene was involved, but we don't know how," said Ventura County fire dispatcher Shonna Matthews. The explosion rocked the Milton Poulos Corp. plant in the 300 block of East 5th Street at 5:25 p.m. The explosion occurred in the tomato-ripening area where a gas process is used to prepare the vegetables.

Fire caused $180,000 in damage to an Oak Park home Wednesday, partly because firefighters had to stay clear of the discharge of thousands of bullets that had been stored in the garage, the Ventura County Fire Department said. The 5:36 p.m. fire started when an unidentified 14-year-old boy was welding a gasoline tank to a motorcycle in the garage of the house at 6322 Bayberry St. and the gas tank exploded, county fire dispatcher Shonna Matthews said.

A 10,000-acre blaze that seared brittle-dry brush and burned citrus groves outside Camarillo today was burning itself out, with firefighters predicting they would have it halted by sundown. Another brush fire in Chatsworth was declared contained this morning after blackening about 100 acres. No buildings were threatened in the San Fernando Valley fire, which started before dawn, and city and county firefighters were expected to remain at the scene throughout the day to prevent flare-ups.
