Horn, Otto, M. (Home Destroyed by Fire - 15 FEB 1933)

Sparks from the chimney started a fire in the attic of the Otto Horn home in Braun Settlement last Wednesday afternoon, burning the home to the ground.

The fire was discovered about 3:30 p.m. by Theodore Braun, who operated the cheese factory across the road from the Horn home. Mr. Horn was in Greenwood at the time and the absence of help prevented volunteer firemen from saving the home.

Neighbors managed to save all furniture except that in the two bedrooms upstairs. Even the canned fruit in the basement was saved.

The house was one of the oldest house in Braun Settlement and was a large brick structure. After the fire only the walls were left standing. It was built in 1891.

The Horn family is staying at the Theodore Braun home. The loss was covered by insurance.
