A fire apparently caused by a smoldering cigarette destroyed a trailer parked at a South El Monte horse stable and killed a man sleeping inside, authorities said Monday. The man was burned beyond recognition in the fire, Sheriff's Deputy George Ducoulombier said. The fire in the trailer parked at a horse stable area at 12625 Rush St. was reported at 10:10 p.m. Sunday, he said. "The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but arson experts believe it was caused by a cigarette that ignited a couch inside the trailer," Ducoulombier said.

There are saves and blown saves for closers and holds for setup men, but there is no formal measure for the performance of those less-heralded relievers who enter with their team trailing by a few runs and hold the score, giving their offense a chance to come back. There should be. Managers often talk of the importance of holding late-inning leads and building a bridge between the starter and closer, but as the Angels have been reminded in the first two weeks, it's just as important to hold slim deficits.

Re " 'Polio Pond' Cure Is Due," April 14: San Juan Creek is described as an urban-fed channel that deposits dirty water in Dana Point. In fact, it is an equestrian sewer, with San Juan Capistrano's 1,200 horses living along its banks. Our horse stables are an industry, and they need to process their runoff like all other industries.

A Chatsworth stable received permission from the City Council Tuesday to house as many as 50 horses at a time on the nine-acre property, far less than had been sought.

The world's airline industry has rebounded from the recession and expects 2014 to be the most profitable year on record, thanks to stable fuel prices and growing travel demand. That's great news if you're an airline executive or shareholder. But don't expect the suddenly well-off airlines to pass along their good fortune to passengers by slashing fares. Industry experts do say the continued pressure from low-cost carriers should keep the big network carriers from imposing dramatic fare hikes.

Smoky's Stables, one of the few remaining horse stables in the area, soon will be just a little part of the city's history. The Metropolitan Water District, which owns the land, has terminated the stable's lease, leaving 150 horses without a home. The district is in negotiation with Signal Landmark in Irvine to develop 41.5 acres next to the Bolsa Chica Wetlands. But for stable owners Fred and Alexis Burkett, the news that they must vacate by the end of the year was sad.
