AUDETH HAIVERSON Ifeniiw ti fitter October 10,1957 frubllibed By Th» Upper tttft Main** Publiihlng Co., Atgotta, Iowa 2 Seneca Barns Lost In Fires Heavy Losses At Johnson, Rolling Places Seneca — Fife of unknown origin destroyed the barn and a small building on the George Johnson place, northeast of Seneca, last Thursday afternoon about 2:30 p.m. Then high winds fanned the flumes and it is believed that Burning embers carried to the fiat Rolling barn, setting it afire. and it too was destroyed. It is •fflought that possibly burning shingles blew through the open door of the Rolling barn and ignited the baled hay. "The Johnson barn housed sev- ^fal pieces of machinery as well a* hajr and milking equipment. 9J addition to the structures des- woyed, one side of a corn crib was Charred and the house was damaged to a lesser degree. Much o| the furniture was carried out aft firefighters were not certain ttley could control the fire be- xj&use of the wind. -"While fire trucks from Swea fSty, Bancroft, Armstrong and Cone Rock were fighting the fire, and neighbors were helping, the fire was discovered at the Rolling place, one-quarter mile northwest of Johnson's. ."Burning shingles were found elsrwhere on the Rolling farm . yJartf, from the Johnson fire. "ILi addition to the loss of tho barn and hay, a riding pony and saddle belonging to Eugene Gardner were also lost. -The fire at Johnsons was discovered by Maynard Hurlburt. He called the Swea City Fire department. The Johnsons were jtipt home at the time. «;An estimated 3,000 bales of hay, straw, a corn picker valued at $2,000 a mower, seeder and other equipment were lost at the Johnson place. A bull in the barn was badly burned and had to be destroyed. Forrest Bassett is owner of the farm. Part of the loss is covered by insurance.
