There have been others, some of which left devastating marks here, all documented by newspapers including the La Cañada Valley Sun. In November 1933 the San Gabriel Mountains behind La Cañada and La Crescenta were on fire, with the blaze at one point sweeping down along the east side of Pickens Canyon, as thousands of spectators lined Foothill Boulevard to watch the flames shooting hundreds of feet in the air. The Gould Castle then sat prominently at the mouth of Pickens Canyon.
