BOYER LUMBER FIRE
West High St. at Missouri St.

Picture photographed by  Ruth Ann Hill:  This was taken when the old Boyer Lumber company burned in Potosi.  I don't know the date when it happened -  it must have been in the late 70's because both my kids were in elementry school at the time.  This is where there is a vacant lot today, they made into a parking lot as you go down S. Missouri street, next  to what used to be the YMCA.  They had every fire truck within 50 miles of Potosi here that day.  I was standing in front of the court  house to take the picture.

CARROLL FIRE - 27 February 2014
Gene was burning some trash & came inside the house to rest. He was only in the house maybe 10 minutes but the wind started in & when he went to go back out the yard was on fire! It was getting close to our garage & camper & into the edge of the woods with dry leaves so I called the fire department while Gene went out & did what he could to contain the fire. I told the dispatcher the brush buggy could probably handle it but they sent the brush buggy & a pumper too just in case. There were about a half dozen firemen & they all dove right in & got it under control in no time. Gene wanted to help them but with his heart trouble, high blood pressure & emphyzema he couldn't do much. We are really grateful that they got it taken care of.
