Maynard, MN Fire, Jan 1911

ONE BUILDING LEFT IN BLOCK AT MAYNARD

MAYNARD, Minn., Jan. 6.---Fire broke out at noon in the rear of the Habstritt dry goods and grocery store, not only completely destroying that building and contents, but wiping out four other mercantile houses with their contents.

Owing to the intense cold and scarity[sic] of water the fire was beyond control of the fire company. The total loss will reach $30,000. The only building in the block which was saved was the Maynard State bank.

The losers are: Fred Habstritt, dry goods store, loss about $20,000; P. H. Ruff, harness dealer, $4,000; A. A. Hagenk, department store, $3,500; Mrs. Dora Ladrence, millinery, $1,000; A. L. Shaver, postoffice building and personal property, $1,200; Dr. J. W. Helland, drugs, library, instruments, $2,000.
