Emily is a 15 year old sophomore at The Learning Center in Castlewood and she has been drag racing since she was 12 years old. Emily has qualified for the IHRA World Finals and will travel to Memphis TN to race against other cars from across the country on October 19th through the 22nd. traffic around the Western Front section to allow hoses to be stretched across Alt. 58. The fire was brought under control about 9:30 p.m. St. Paul firemen stayed with the burning ruins until about midnight, then were recalled when hot spots developed into blazing menaces. The last man left the scene about 3 a.m. Sunday morning. Two front end loaders were used to clear the debris to allow firemen access the buried heat. The block walls, which col- lapsed from the heat, made movement into the center of the rubble very difficult. The stock of rubber materi- al, tires and tire carcasses helped feed the fire. Fire broke through the piled-up debris again early Monday morning, and St. Paul firemen worked near- ly two hours after the 5:15 alarm sounded. St. Paul Fire chief Cecil Hall declared that it was the hottest fire around St. Paul for quite a while, and praised the efforts and cooperation of all the par- ticipating units. The police departments and rescue units were also of great From Page 1 help during the fire. Local citizens who volunteered to man tile hoses and relieve the firemen did a good servicr, according to Chief Hall. And, Hall added, the women who brought sand- wiches, coffee and water really deserve credit.

Commonwealth's Attorney Brian Patton stat- ed, "manufacturing of Methamphetamine is an extremely dangerous activ- ity, both for the person making Methamphetamine and the innocent bystanders and neighbors in proximity to the illegal processes. I believe we are all aware of the tragic sto- Nes of people being seri- ously injured or killed by containers exploding and catching fire during the illegal manufacturing process."
