Three Occupants of the Glitschka Ranch Near Falconer's have One
Will and Fred Glitschka and Bert Hart occupying a house south of the city near the Falconer farm, had a narrow escape from suffocation last night. The building in which they live took fire at some time after they had gone to bed. They were awakened at about 2 o'clock in the morning, by a dog which stays about the place, and which had become alarmed at a far which had started on the roof. When they awoke the room was filled with smoke, and all three of them were considerably the worse for the smoke they had inhaled while asleep. They managed to extinguish the flames after an hour's fight, only a part of the roof being destroyed. Had it not been for the dog, all three might have perished.
