Beer Warehouse At Medford Razed by Thirsty Flame

Medford, Wis. – The beer warehouse of the Val Blatz Brewing Co., here, was destroyed by fire late Tuesday.

The blaze in the old two-story building was started by a defective stove pipe and chimney. The building contained about $3,000 worth of beverages.

The office building and a smaller warehouse, filled with empty cases were saved.

The beer house, built 45 years ago, was constructed of six thicknesses of lumber, with the spaces in between stuffed with sawdust, preventing the fire department from making much headway against the blaze.
