News: Dorchester – Family Loses Home to Fire (Apr 1972)


Surnames: Tischendorf

----Source: Tribune/Phonograph (Abbotsford, Clark Co., Wis.) 20 Apr 1972

The Dorchester Fire Department was called at 8:10 p.m. Friday to a fire of undetermined origin that swept through the eight room two-story home of Mr. and Mrs. Donald Tischendorf, two and one half miles northeast of Dorchester.

The children discovered the fire in one of the upstairs rooms. All of the upstairs furnishing were lost, but most of the furniture downstairs was moved into the garage.

The house had about 75 percent of the structure damaged by fire, water, or smoke, and was estimated at a $10,000 loss, partly covered by insurance. Mr. and Mrs. Tischendorf had much praise for the firemen for their prompt and efficient service. The firemen stayed on the scene for about three hours. Mr. and Mrs. Tischendorf and five children are living in a mobile home on their property.
