The true use of gold is for paving streets, covering houses and making culinary dishes, and when the Saints shall have preached the gospel, raised grain and built up cities enough, the Lord will open up a way for a supply of gold to the perfect satisfaction of His people. Until that time, let them not be over anxious, for the treasures of the earth are in the Lordís storehouse and He will open the doors thereof when and where He pleases.

(Brigham Young at Home, p. 252.)

About 1952 there was fire up near the mine that jumped the canal and headed up over the mine property.  I remember sitting on my folks porch in Spanish Fork while watching the fire race up the mountain.  It burned for several days.  I saw it go up Flat Canyon. When it got towards the top of Flat Canyon the big pine trees would explode sending fires high up into the air.  Everybody was concerned about the buildings on the mine property.  It looked like the fire was going to take them. 

Quayle Dixon went up to the Bishops house and as the fire approached that house, Quayle with his hand to the square and by the authority of the Holy Melchizedek priesthood rebuked the fire that it would not destroy the house.  He said the fire seemed to jump right over the house and it was not damaged in any way.  Both clothesline posts burned right to the ground but there was no damage to the house.  I don't recall there being damage to any of the other buildings.  Everybody was acknowledging the hand of the Lord for saving those buildings.
