Fullerton, ND Depot Fire, Dec 1915

SOO LINE DEPOT BURNED AT FULLERTON

Fullerton, N. D., Dec. 4.---An early morning fire, believed to be due to an explosion of coal gas this office stove, destroyed the "Soo" depot at Fullerton with all its contents, including the records of the office. The fire was discovered, and just as the department reached the scene the floor fell in. The freight room and express department were both nearly empty, materially lessening the loss to the railroad company, though it will be at no little cost and trouble because of the loss of office records.
