BLAZE IS CONTROLLED: Firemen from Carroll and Breda helped contain a stubborn fire that broke out in a double hog shed at the Clark Grain Company, Maple River, Friday afternoon. The blaze for a time threatened a lumber yard, bulk oil tanks, and grain elevator as well as other structures. The fire apparently originated when a torch was used in the shed to thaw a frozen hydrant, a grain company official reported. Two hogs were badly burned and had to be killed. The rest of about 75 in the shed were saved. Loss was estimated at about $1,000.
