“Lamona Section House Destroyed by Flames. The section foreman, Hans Underberg, and wife and baby, escaped their burning house at Lamona, Tuesday morning, with only what they have on their backs. Fire started from a gas stove. Frank Tate, signal man at Harrington, received a call to bring section men to help fight the fire which was threatening nearby warehouses, and other buildings. Crews from Bluestem and Edwall also responded. Residents of Lamona and farmers also assisted. Bud Golm received severe cuts on his right arm and left hand from broken glass, while fighting fire, and was treated by Dr Wagner.” (Citizen: 7-15-1938)
