November 4, 1921: "J.F. Lambertson of San Francisco, left his campfire one morning in September, intending to hunt an hour before breakfast. He became lost and about noon, started a fire in the Forest with the idea of attracting his companions. He had, by this time, became quite confused, and scarcely knew what he was doing. He left the fire without extinguishing it, although he stated, afterwards, that he intended to do so. In the meantime, the smoke was seen by W.C. Duncan, Lookout on Dubakella Mt., and he was dispatched to the fire. After working on the fire, which by this time had reached an area of 1/4 acre and making it safe, he discovered Lambertson's tracks and tracked him to Peanut. Lambertson was taken before Justice Dockery of Hayfork and fined $50, which was suspended on account of the circumstances of the case." (California District News Letter)
November 7, 1931: "A new telephone line has been completed from Peanut to Dubakella lookout station. The crew have now returned to their homes for the winter." (Blue Lake Advocate)
