More than 200 firefighters and half a dozen aircraft were battling a fast-spreading fire near Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia on Tuesday afternoon. The fire started west of the amusement park before 11:30 a.m. and by 1 p.m. had burned 35 acres and was 25% contained. “We've done really quick work today,” Los Angeles County fire inspector Scott Miller said. Officials triggered a three-alarm call for the blaze, which pulled in 228 firefighters, three helicopters and four fixed-wing planes to douse the flames before it got out of control.

Michelle Suter-Unthank had never heard her son sound so poised, so mature. On a Friday evening in May, Marine Pfc. Jake Suter,18, called his mother and stepfather at their Stevenson Ranch home. For about six months, Suter had been stationed at the Marine Corps base at Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii. Two days later, he would be deployed to Afghanistan. That night, he spoke to his parents for 2 1/2 hours. "We had a work-up on the Afghani people, and they're really nice people, they're very respectful people," his mother quoted him as saying.

Army Sgt. Ian T.D. Gelig was so popular in his Stevenson Ranch neighborhood that whenever the paratrooper returned home on leave, his two sisters would keep his visits secret for a while. "We wouldn't tell people he was here because we wanted to hang out with him," said his younger sister, Vanessa, 21, who was sitting in the family living room, photographs of her brother adorning the walls and tabletops. "Otherwise, everybody would be coming over. He had this way with people.

While the eyes of the nation on Jan. 17 were on the destruction in the San Fernando Valley, the community of Stevenson Ranch was also mobilizing itself to deal with the earthquake. Stevenson Ranch is an area of 1,200 families near Magic Mountain in the western Santa Clarita Valley. It is about four miles from the quake's epicenter. What happened there demonstrates the value of a grass-roots community organization when a disaster occurs.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department watchdog released a report Thursday cataloging several serious examples of deputy misconduct, including one case in which a deputy shot at a motorist who bumped his car at a fast-food restaurant and another in which a deputy covered up a shooting that occurred during a foot pursuit. The Office of Independent Review compiles the list each year. Officials said that they have not detected an increase in misconduct cases but that it was important to publicize the wrongdoing of officers in hopes of reducing such incidents.

I've been a big fan of Christian Bale since I saw him in "American Psycho," in which he delivered a very deep and intense performance. Then I heard his inexcusable and demeaning tirade a couple of days ago ["Tinseltown's a Tirade Town," by Patrick Goldstein, Feb. 5]. I'd really like to know if he apologized to the director of photography and to everyone who witnessed this outburst. I feel for the person at whom his tirade was aimed, as well as those who witnessed it. There are definitely better ways to get a point across to people who make mistakes in a more respectful way than with a vulgar, expletive-laced and really long tirade.

Michael Klastorin watched the wind near his Saugus home catch some small flames. Within a minute, the fire had reduced a 100-yard slope of chaparral to soot and withered sticks. Then from behind a ridge closer to his home, black smoke poured into the air, followed by loud pops and cracks as wood exploded, and then flames roared into view. "Just that fast," Klastorin, 50, who lives on Celestial Lane, said late Monday. "It comes that fast."

When Stevenson Ranch grabs headlines, it's for the subdivision's award-winning but crowded schools, the quick turnover of its comfortable homes and the safety of its curving streets, where so many big-city cops have chosen to live. On Friday, Stevenson Ranch's Blue Ribbon school was evacuated, a $340,000 house was in ashes and a sheriff's deputy was dead.

Regarding David Lazarus' column "Madoff warnings fell on deaf ears," Dec. 21: I think the suggested punishment, "a night or two in the box," is far too lenient. Megalomaniacal, narcissistic madman Bernard L. Madoff ought to be sent to an institution for the criminally insane, where for good behavior he might get to share a cell with Charles Manson or some other creature of his ilk.

I want to personally thank Frank McCourt and his staff for messing with the Los Angeles Marathon. Mr. McCourt, please stick to overseeing the Dodgers, because with the two date changes, it proves you know nothing about marathon running. Keep the race in early March when the weather is cooler. Margaret Reilly-Bates Stevenson Ranch -- In May, the heat and the air quality will rival Beijing's. The new owners should take a year off to think about it. Make it mean something when the starting gun triggers "I Love L.A."
