Some fires were fought harder than others
Editor's note: This is the second in a two-part series about the history of the Wadena Fire Department.
Through the years there were, of course many fires, both large and small. The early fires were probably more severe because all of the original buildings in Wadena were wood frame and with poor or no fire fighting equipment it was inevitable. The good part of this process was that the buildings were rebuilt with brick.
