To Helen Sasek. aged five yenare,
I goes the credit fur sounding tli
alarm of the East Helena firte. She
rushed to her mother at 12:30
o'clock aud told her a shed in Ihe
rear of the Stanich home, a few feet
away, was afire.
There were no accidents although
faltiig wires, trolley linies, light wires
and telephone lines cluttered up the
main street and two ga.soline storage
taulks exploded. There were several
volleys which sounded like mnachinte
guns, which proved to be stores or
ammunition of all kinds going up in
the general conflagration.
The Helena fire department lent
splendid aid. The East Helena vol

gasoline fire pump broke then the
principal business section went.
Insurance lmen made it survey of
East Helena last spring and after it
was completed 90 per cent of the
homes were insured.
