Seven Left Homeless In Fire

On October 5, 1944 at 4:00 a.m. firemen responded to the Roxbury Road near Mongul for a house fire. A fire of undetermined origin completely destroyed an occupied 2-story log and brick house. Because of a lack of water firemen were unable to save the house but were able to protect the barn and out buildings. Seven people were displaced. Damages were estimated at $5,000. The Vigilant Hose Company extinguished the blaze.

Friday I had nothing prepared and with the views on the site down didn't feel like taking the time to come up with something before heading out of town last week.
