One barn containing 94 horses was in direct line of fire as it roared southward. Two men, both officials of the lumber producing companies, reached this barn ahead of the fire. They hoped that they would have time to release all of the horses before the fire arrived, get them out of the barn and guide them to safety. But the terrified horses continued to return to their stalls as fast as they were driven outside. The two men decided to release all of the horses before starting them out of the barn.
The fire caused loss of hundreds of lives and destroyed millions of dollars in property, leaving the remaining victims homeless in the fall of 1918. The Historical Society built and maintains a museum dedicated to the fire.

Your generosity made such a positive impact on the families and students in need in our district and is greatly appreciated.
