Cleversburg House Destroyed

On January 31, 1938 at 5:30 a.m. firemen raced to a house fire occupied by Wilbur Myers and situated near Cleversburg. A fire caused by an overheated stove destroyed an occupied 2-½-story house and its contents, the home was said to be one of the oldest in the vicinity. By the time firemen arrived the blaze had gained considerable headway. The closest water was in a well on the property and it was not sufficient to extinguish the blaze. Damages were estimated at $3,000. The Vigilant Hose Company answered the alarm.

No relative. Keep warm out there and I hope you are catching some jobs to shoot.
