Pages of History: Quick action saves a mill from flames

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, December 1951.

Timely discovery of a fire beneath the floor of Baird’s Mill out on Highway 101 about 1 a.m. on Tuesday morning saved the building from being destroyed.

The fire was discovered by Arthur Flick, an employee, who was returning from Cave Junction with a company caterpillar. He noticed the fire when he went to stow the tractor away and ran to the home of owner C. A. Baird.
