Flash fire breaks out COWLEY (IINS) High temperatures and wind driven sparks combined to cause a flash fire at Johnson Brothers sawmill in Cowley during the noon hour break Thursday. Employee Henls Dykstra cir- cled the mill yard before leav- ing fo- lunch. He saw flames shooting up from the shavings shed and quickly alerted other workers. Trained hands directed water under the flames and the Cow- ley pumper, with chief Maurice Lemire in charge, followed up with further water. The muni- cipal fire truck stood by with chief Archie Petrone and asso- ciates ready if needed. Cause of the blaze, which left the roof blistered and charred, is believed to have been sparks from the burner, diverted to shavings by a sud- den change of the wind. The 90 degree plus tem- perature did the rest. With trained fire crews on the job, the fire was extinguish- ed before one o'clock and reg- ular mill work resumed on schedule.
