Otto Pipkorn, route 1, Loyal (Clark Co., Wis.) escaped death early Friday morning when he jumped from an upstairs window as flames destroyed the George Fisher home. The Loyal Fire Department answered a call to the Fisher farm northeast of the city in the town of Beaver shortly after midnight, but the entire house was engulfed by the time firemen arrived. Mr. Pipkorn was taken by Greenwood Ambulance to St. Joseph's Hospital in Marshfield, where he was treated for a possible broken leg.

Mr. Fisher was able to get out of the house, but attempts to reenter the home were futile. Mrs. Fisher was in St. Joseph's Hospital at the time, having given birth to a daughter a few days before.

Efforts on the part of friends and neighbors to collect clothing for the family have been very successful.
