Scroll down for the Freeze Building entry. “Peter Freeze was awakened Monday morning at about 1 o’clock by a bright light shining in his bed room window, and on rushing out he found his blacksmith shop in flames. The entire roof was on fire before the alarm was given, and the arrival of the fire department did little to stop the blaze since the hose was being manipulated by those who knew very little about it. Nothing could be done to save the shop. Freeze’s residence and a neighboring frame house were saved, however.” (Submitted on March 8, 2014.)
