Brule, MN Hotel Blown Down in High Wind, Mar 1910

HOTEL STRUCTURE AT BRULE IS BLOWN DOWN

(News Tribune Special.)

ASHLAND, March 22.----During the extreme high wind that prevailed yesterday, the two story brick hotel of John O'Brien at Brule was blown down and is now a scrap heap of brick, iron and wood. The hotel had just been completed and Mr. O'Brien contemplated moving in a couple of days. It was fortunate that he had not taken possession or not doubt there would have been loss of life connected with the wrecking of the structure. It is said that settling of the foundation weakened the building.
