Algona firemen were called — and the photo above shows the scene that greeted them when they arrived. Asphalt waste, a small quantity of oil and Some old truck tires added up to plenty of smoke. The scrap was ignited by workmen Using torches to clean & truck near the accumulated waste pile. Within a matter of minutes, the firemen wefe ort the gctene and hundreds of persons either drove by or stopped to make sure the blaze was under cpntrol. Firemen also made a speedy trip to the Ervm Gerber farm, eight miles southwest of Algona, late Monday afternoon when fire broke out in a large 'cornfield.
