April 1930: "Lookouts proved their value in many ways during the past season. One instance on Great Northern Bridge #412 fire of August 1, Beckler Peak Lookout saw a Great Northern work train unloading ties near Bridge #412 and while they were at this work he noticed a puff of smoke about 50 feet up the slope to the south of the engine. The train at once backed up in a hurry to Alpine to get help on the fire, which was then spreading rapidly up the hill. Meanwhile Beckler Peak reported the fire to Skykomish Ranger Station and the Great Northern agent at Skykomish was informed about two hours later. Mr. Clary, Great Northern trainmaster, called up Skykomish Ranger Station and informed the district ranger that this fire was not theirs as it started off their right-of-way. I was able to give him a complete history of the fire from information given by Beckler Peak and nothing more was said about responsibility for the fire, which cost the Great Northern over $1,000."
