Fire of unknown origin Friday night completely destroyed a home on the Louis Holden farm, located six miles east of Abbotsford, and one-half mile north.

The Abbotsford Fire Department was summoned to the blaze about 11 p.m. and remained on the scene until mid-Saturday morning. The Dorchester Fire Department was then summoned as pumps started to freeze up.

Only a few items were saved in the blaze, with loss set at about $10,000. The structure was partially insured.

The blaze, notice by Holden (or Holder) when he arrived home, is believed to have started as a result of an overheated oil burner. A neighbor summoned the fire department.
