WATER ON THE FIRE SCENE: Huge pools of water and expanses of ice soon covered the Gill Lumber Co. fire area as firemen poured thousands of gallons of water on the buildings from two directions. No firemen were seriously hurt, although there were many minor bruises from falls on ice-covered surfaces. Cause of the blaze was undetermined but may have stemmed from an electrical short in wiring running to a power saw.
