June 29, 1945

Lightning, during a severe electrical storm, early Friday morning, June 29, 1945, caused a fire in a large garage on the Robert Malick farm near Williamstown. The fire consumed the garage, along with three pleasure cars, tools, and farm equipment. The building collapsed twenty minutes after the fire was discovered, and little else could be done by the Lykens, Wiconisco, and Williamstown firemen who answered the call. The owners of the burned cars were Harry Umholtz, Raymond Malick, and Robert Malick. The damage was estimated at $2,000, part of which was covered by insurance.
