----Source: Greenwood Gleaner (Greenwood, Clark Co., Wis.) 04 Apr 1940

The Kalkofen Cheese Factory, 3 1/2 miles south of Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.), was completely destroyed by fire at about 11:45 o'clock Friday night.

The blaze, of undetermined origin, was discovered by neighbors, at whose home Mrs. Kalkofen was attending a car party at the time.

Other members of the Kalkofen family were asleep in their rooms in the rear of the factory. They were awakened and some furniture and clothing were saved from the burning building.

The loss is partly covered by insurance.
