Careless Toss of Cigarette—Then This! Farm fires are an ever-presenl danger, especially in Ihe fall of the 1 year and during the winter, although no season is immune from them. The- above photo was taken lust year at the McNcrtney farm .-it the west edge of Bancroft. In this case, in the /all with fields tinder-dry, a cigarette tossed from a car window set fire to dry .-tubbk- which with the aid of a strong wind swept across several acres and into the McNertney yard. Several buildings and a" large quantity of stored corn were lost, but fire companies were able to save the house, although it was in the path of the strong wind and fire. Files frequently start from "acts of God" such as bolts of lightning, but more often they can be caused by thoughtlessness — surh as in this case where one cigarette tossed "from a car window r.-sulU'd in thousands of dollars loss.

Can ygu honestly say that none of the above examples of fire hazards occur in your homp. The answers are: 1. don't be careless with cigarettes; 2. don't use flamable cleaning fluids; 3. don't overload your wiring system; 4. don't let children play with matches; 5. don't let junk accumulate in the attic and basement; p. don't smoke in bed. Maybe you answered all the questions correctly, but don't for a minute think that rules alone will prevent fires. There are thousands of different ways a fire can start in your home. Only by being constantly aware of the danger of fire can we avoid doing those things which produce fire. Nine out of ten of all fires are caused by human error or neglect.
