Fire strikes two houses. Investigation continues into the cause of a fire Thursday that destroyed a house on West Maple and damaged another. No one was hurt in the blaze thanks to quick action of an unknown passerby. Authories said passerby stopped and banged on the window of the burning house about 2 p.m. Corey Miller was asleep in the room and jumped through the window after being awakened. The fire started in the laundry washroom area. It jumped to the next door house which belonged to Miller’s grandfather the late Harry Miller Sr. who died earlier this week. More than 25 full time and volunteer firefighters responded to the fire call.
