Bio: Boss, Vernon (Fire Destroys Barn – Dec 1972)
---------Source: OWEN ENTERPRISE (Owen, Clark County, Wis.) 04 Jan 1973
A fire early Friday morning destroyed the barn and most of its contents at the Vernon Boss farm, route 1, Curtiss (Clark Co., Wis.).
The barn was leveled and five milk cows and seven young stock were killed in the blaze. Machinery destroyed included a combine, self-unloading wagon and a blower. The silos were also damaged, but he condition of their contents was not determined.
The fire was discovered by neighbors about 12:30 a.m. The blaze was out of control by the time the family was awakened.
Volunteers from the Colby and Curtiss Fire Departments fought the blaze through the night, during which high winds fanned the flames.
The stock that was saved from the fire will be housed in a nearby barn owned by Boss, and in barns of his neighbors.
