SPARK STARTS DECKER FIRE Watch Kept Through Night for Trouble The Mason Citj* fire department was called to the Jacob E. Decker and Sons packing plant about 2 o'clock Wednesday afternoon when a spark from an air compressoi set fire to grease and oil on the top of an oil tank in the engine room at the plant. . Actual extinguishment of the fire was not difficult when the fire department arrived, but the oil in the tank had been heated ano since this is piped to the killing floor and other parts of the plant, there was some alarm that fire might break out in other places. For that reason a patrol was placed on duty and one company of the local fire department remained on watch until 5:19 o'clock Wednesday afternoon. The Decker plant then placed some of their own department on watch for the night, but no trouble was reported MRSTSJOTOTT DIES IN HOSPITAL Funeral Rites to Be Friday at Chapel Mrs. Sidney V.
