3August 10, 1923 FOREST FIRES AT TOWER -- ONE DEAD, Fires have been raging around Tower for the past week. Friday it took some heroic fighting to keep the fire from destroying the houses on the John Burnard place. During the excitement Mrs. Ralph Wregglesworth became exhausted and fainted. She was found by some of the fire fighters and brought down the hill to Joe Bernia's house. Dr. McMillan was called but all efforts to revive her were of no avail as she never regained consciousness. She is survived by her husband and eight children. They had moved here from Owosso only 18 days before and were planning on buying the James Pollard farm.
