The 1918 Fire: The Stark Aftermath

The 1918 Fire:  The Stark Aftermath

Although the location of this photo was noted only as “near Duluth,” it could have been taken in Thomson Township.  The fires swept across the northern half of the township and destroyed scores of farms.  The township’s official death count was nine, but it is believed at least two or three more were recorded in data for Duluth or the Village of Thomson.  (Photo courtesy of Viola Korby and Lynda Korby Nordstrom from ‘The Fury of the Flames,’ published in 1919 by Martin A. Olmem, Duluth)
