NEW VEHICLES the Algona fire department answered a call at 6:03 a.m. Monday and spent three hours saving the house on the farm owned by Mrs. M. H. McEnroe, Algona, located six miles northwest of Algona. The interior was badly damaged up'. stAirs and there was smoke and water damage on the first floor. t Mr. and Mrs. Albert Laden- hoff and their five children who occupy the house where he is employed on the farm, all escaped injury. One of the Children wakened upstairs, finding intense heat and smoke and wakened the rest of the family. A mattress in a second floor bedroom had apparently smouldered for some time and suddenly burst into flames, burning a hole in the floor. Fire then spread between the walla of the structure, making control more .difficult. The Ladenhoff family has set up housekeeping in the downstairs of the house, but all clothing for their 3 boys and one girl was lost. The ages of the boys are 4, 5 and 8 and the girl is 7; Anyone wishing to contribute clothing, bedroom furniture and bedding may call 295-3093.
