Alvin Miller Barn (Fire - 14 March 1968)

The 110-foot dairy barn on the Alvin Miller farm, eight miles northeast of Neillsville, was razed by fire last Thursday afternoon. The loss was but partially covered by insurance.

Miller and his wife were working in the basement of the barn when they smelled smoke. Miller ran outside and saw the roof was a blaze. He started driving cattle out while Mrs. Miller ran to the house to telephone the alarm to the Granton Fire Department. She returned, then, and helped him drive the remainder of the cattle out.

A total of 90 head of stock were in the barn at the time, including 35 milk cows, they said.

The Neillsville Fire Department responded to a call for assistance from the Granton Fire Department.
