The farm is tenanted by the Lampe's son Harold and family. Two sons, Mike, 8, and Phillip, 7, playing in the yard near the house, looked up, saw flames coming from the barn about 2:40 p.m. and ran into the house and told their sister, Pat, who called .the Burt fire department. Pat was home for the weekend from her work in Minneapolis. By the time the fire department got there, the entire barn was a mass of flames. In fact, Paul Arena, a close neighbor, who was the first on the scene, said it was just a matter of a few minutes before the whole barn was ablaze. The Burt department was assisted in their efforts at controlling the blaze and keeping it from spreading to nearby buildings by members of the Titonka fire department. A chicken house containing 500 laying hens was badly charred on the east end and only the efforts of the firemen who battled the immense heat and poured water on the building, kept it from going up in flames, also. Destroyed besides the barn were 3,500 bales of hay and over 500 bales of straw, 2 or 3 tons of feed, 55 young pigs about two months old, a trailer, and tools. Several pigs which managed to escape from the barn, were so badly burned they had to be destroyed. The heat from the burning hay and straw was so intense that paint on a garage and pump house 90 to 100 feet south of the barn was badly blistered and the faces of the firemen were a bright red. Neither Mr. and Mrs. Harold Lampe were at home when the fire started. He was at work at the far end of the farm and she was at Estherville on business. The Ben Lampes, who own the farm, were in Burt when the fire whistle blew and when word came the fire was on their farm, they lost no time in getting to the farm. Mr. Lampe estimates their loss at about $20,000, which is party covered by insurance. The Burt firemen stayed at the scene well into the night. 5 Candidates Seek Council Posts At Burt BURT - City election here should draw a lot of voters and attention this year as there are five candidates for seats on the town council.
