Pages of History: Bucket brigade saves Fort Dick church in fire

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, January 1952.

Residents of Fort Dick, Smith River, and travelers passing along Highway 101, working with a bucket brigade and small fire extinguishers, were credited with saving the Fort Dick Community Church from destruction by fire.

Some carried water from puddles along the roadway and others brought fire extinguishers from their cars. The fire started in the small wood shed behind the church and spread to the rear of the main building.
