Stevens Point, WI Malick Creamery Fire, Aug 1906
LOSS IN CREAMERY FIRE RUNS UPWARD OF $1,000.
The loss on the Malick creamery, destroyed by fire Friday afternoon, will run upwards of $1,000. The fire, as previously stated, is supposed to have originated from the fire under the boiler but just how is not known. A few light articles were removed from the lower floor but the general creamery equipment was burned. A large quantity of household goods belonging to Charles U. Malick, which were stored on the second floor, were also destroyed. The building was a story and a half frame structure and was erected four or five years ago. It stood at some distance from the residence and other farm buildings, so the latter were not injured. The household goods had been insured while in the house but the policy had not been altered to cover them in the barn. Mr. Malick was unable to state positively today whether of not the building was insured.
