Fire destroys family’s memories



August 29, 2012 - 12:00 AM

In between a pair of tragedies 70 years apart was an idyllic piece of farmland in southern Allen County.

The farmstead, owned by Bob and Betty Becker, was destroyed in Thursday’s raging grass fire that burned more than 2,500 acres across a two-mile swath of 3200 Street.

Several other area homes were saved in the fire, thanks in large part to the efforts of volunteer firefighters from Humboldt and other departments and quick-thinking and helpful neighbors.
