Firefighters go on a defensive attack to battle flames while smoke billows out the back door of a house in Webster Feb. 12. The home, owned by Christopher Burke, was located at 809 Main Street. The Webster fire whistle blew at about 7:45 a.m. and emergency responders arrived on scene shortly after. Those on scene were the Webster, Waubay and Bristol fire departments, Christensen Ambulance, Webster Police, Day County Sheriff’s Department and Day County Emergency Management. One witnss, Betty Meuer, said she grew up in the home, living there from the time she was about six or seven years old through high school, from the early 1950s to about 1962. With a tear streaking down her face, she said, “It doesn’t really affect me, it’s just sad to see all your memories go up in smoke.” According to the Day County Assessor’s Office, the home was built in approximately 1916. The home was being used as a rental at the time of the fire. Firefighters were still fighting the blaze at press time Friday. Look for more details about the fire in next week’s paper.
