1925 - June 24 - Capron Cottage Narrowly Escapes Destruction by Fire
    Fire of the roof of the Capron cottage on the East Side was discorvered soon enough last Saturday to save the entire building from being destroyed.

    As it was, only the roof was damaged in a spot about ten feet wide and minor damge was done to the interior by water. The shingles were very dry and it the blaze had not been discorded whe it was, it is doubtful whether the building could have been saved not to mention the danger to the surrounding cottages.

    The Culver Fire Department made the run to the cottage but the fire had been extingusihed by a bucket brigade early in the game.

    It has been estimated that fifty dollars will cover the loss. It is thought that sparks from the chimney caused the fire.
