Details of the September, 21, 1924 Tornado.




September 1948

A fire swept through the August Ehlers cheese factory last Friday noon.

The factory is located about five miles southeast of Thorp, in the Town of Reseburg. Until recently, the factory had been operated by the Yaeger brothers and was taken over by Ed Franz on August 15 of this year.

Franz and an apprentice cheesemaker were working in the plant unaware of the blaze when it was discovered by Mrs. William Przybylski who lives across the town road from the factory.

Przybylski ran to the factory and notified the men about the fire. With help, they were able to save the factory’s two agitators, a stainless steel vat, a Kusel cheese press and a variety of groceries.

The plant had been handling about 10,000 pounds of milk daily. The milk is now being hauled to Meinholdt’s Pleasant Ridge cheese factory, located about nine miles northwest of Greenwood.
