Although the fire hardly got through the roof, it did raise havoc with the interior walls, plaster and paint, and shrouded the area with smoke that proved a hindrance to, fire fighters. Many friends and neighbors of the Haugehs aided In tarrying out household goods and clothing. It was necessary for firemen to chop holes in the walls to get at the blaze and put it Out. Cause of the blaze may have been defective wiring, although it is not certain. Mr Haugen is employed by Torsten Lagerstrom and Mrs Haugen works in the ready-to-wear department at Graham's store.
