News for Eagle Bend's Past
25 Years Ago April 19, 1995 The Eagle Bend Fire Department was called to a kiln fire at the Allan Pederson residence at 10:30 Saturday night. When Pederson came out of the house he saw smoke and there were flames coming through the attic floor. The fire was contained in the attic where the fans circulated the air to dry the wood in the kiln. Pederson dries lumber for a door factory and 20,000 board feet of aspen will have to be reprocessed into another product, such as pallets. The cause of the fire is still unknown. ********** Lisa Pachan, daughter of Ed and Doris Pachan of rural Eagle Bend, participated in an alternative spring break trip in Tucson, Arizona through the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University.
