Mutual Aid to the Rescue


August 20, 2020

Fire Departments from Peterson, Royal and Sutherland battled a blaze at the Oak Grove Farm near Peterson on Monday afternoon.

A workshop/machine shed at a 4th generation Century Farm set in God's Country, near Peterson and near Sutherland, experienced an explosion and fire Monday August 17. Sitting high on a hill and well off the gravel roads the home of Jim Larson and Jan Wilson was unharmed, but a 53 x 100 foot metal building situated very near the home was destroyed that morning.

Inside the building were 3 wagons and a tractor. Also housed in the building was Jim's wood workshop and much of his wood working art. He also used the building to reload ammunition. He was out in that building Monday morning.
