Hammer, William (Home Destroyed - 2 MAR 1932)

Our community was aroused early Wednesday morning between three and four o'clock and learned the Wm. Hammer home was afire.

Help arrived at once but it was impossible to save only a few articles, the fire had gained such headway. It is believed the fire started from a heater.

The loss is partially covered by insurance.

Walter Kuhlman of Medford, who is employed at the Hammer home, got his leg seriously injured when he slipped and was run over by a tractor while getting it out of a nearby shed, during the fire. A lug cutting through the calf and his arm was also injured. A doctor was called at once and he was taken to the Neillsville Hospital.

Mrs. Hammer and little son Billy were both patients at the Neillsville Hospital, where Mrs. Is receiving treatments and Billy was taken for pneumonia and later underwent an operation for appendicitis and was seriously ill.
