As Fire Destroyed 7 Plum Creek Farm Buildings Only last August 23. a farm fire with a loss estimated at that time of $50.000. struck the Win. Kuhn farm north northeast of Algona. in Plum Creek township. The above photos were taken by an Upper Des Moines reporter at the height of the blaze. Mr Kuhn's loss was partly covered by insurance. Sometimes it is not only the buildings and their value that is destroyed but valuable and high- priced machinery and equipment. Such was the case at the Kuhn farm. The Kuhns were not at home the time the fire began, and passersby and neighbors spotted the smoke at about the same time. Algona and Burl fire departments were called, and were able to save one quonset-type home and the garage, as well as the main house. All other farm buildings, including their stored hay and corn, and much machinery, were a total loss.
