Howard McNish of the Union Marina observed smoke coming from the home about 6 a.m. Tues- day when he went to float out an oyster barge loaned him by Hunt- el'. After seeing the smoke, he re- turned home to call Fire Chief Otto Wojahn and Neal Puten. The three returned and entered the building with gas masks and discovered smouldering bedding and a mattress in a bedroom. THE INTENSE FIEAT had broken all the windows. The fur- nishings and the interior of the home were ruined by smoke and charring from the blaze. It is believed the fire was started from a cigarette left by someone who had entered the home during the night. Dick Bueshel said he had observed lights in the home about midnight Monday night, but saw no car. HUNTEI WAS NOTIFIED.by Mrs. Buechel at his Skokomish Valley home and he arrived at the scene about 7 a.m. after firemen had extinguished the blaze. This was the second time in re- cent weeks the Hunter beach home had been entered . Firemen responding to the call in addition to Wojohn and Puten were Karl O'Berry, Dick Buechel, Bud Wyatt and Harry Coles, Larry Sheel, Shelton, a passer-by, also assisted. There was a great deal of ex- citement in Union last Tuesday morning, and which same extended as far up Purdy Road was the site of the old State Salmon Hatchery of 75 years ago, and which is now the property and home of Mr. and Mrs. Deno. Mr. De Roache of Shelton who was operating the County road grader at the time saw what seemed to be smoke rising from between shingles on the roof of the old time "Hatchery house" now the Deno home place. He notified Mrs. Deno. who didn't stop to lok for a blaze or cause of the smoke, but immediately called the Union Volunteer Fire Dept. Assistant Fire Chief Bob Peck picked up Steve Morris, who was home due to snow fall in the woods, and the duo set out in the fire truck with siren on.Clara Eastwood happened FROM to be in Bali's Food Center at the time, and as Tom Ball yodeled Freddie's be at his mother's cottage to the )'ear of the store, both men hopped into her car, and were on their way to the Deno home; Dick Bus- THE NATURAL chel was b00sy putting )n a new telephone contgvance at Alder- GIFT Egg Beautify your home with flowers for Easter.

There was much action---by the fire- fighters, and soon the smoking ceased, after combined efforts of the crew found the smoke was due to a faulty ehinmey made of cement blocks, the result being very little damage. Also rushing to the scene of] the smoke blaze were two young] Skokomish fishermen, who were I busy with their set-nets at the] bend of the Skokomish River. Th-ey I immediately left their gill nets I and catch, to lend a hand in put- ting out the blaze, a fact that every one appreciated.

Three names of which are listed on the front page of Union's Tele- phone book. Quick thinking and obsetwation of Mr. De Roache, informing Mrs. Deno and she at once calling Un- ion Fire Dept., and their p'ompt action in. getting on the scene-- plus efforts of the two young Skokomish fishermen, averted what )night have been a disastr- ous fire. New comers to this district find it difficult to believe that a half century ago---the huge old frame hatchery building occupied a space as large as a city block. It stood directly before the now Deno home. which then was the old time hatchery house. The 75- year-old building collapsed under several feet of snow about 39 years ago. At a time the old house was also unoccupied.
