News: Abbotsford – Custom Lumber Co. Fire (Sep 1916)


Surnames: Demank

----- Source: Loyal Tribune (Loyal, Clark Co., Wis.) 09/14/1916

The Custom Lumber Company's sawmill was completely destroyed by fire last Friday night at about eleven o'clock. The origin of the first is unknown and had gained such headway by the time the fire company got there, there was no chance to save it. Several hundred dollars' worth of lumber that was piled in the mill also was burned. A large amount of lumber belonging to Harry Demank, which was piled near the mill, was on fire several times, but was save. No insurance was carried, so the damage is a complete loss.
