The Ritzville


October 27, 1921


While driving home last Thursday night after work at the Pastime Pool Hall, Henry Wellsandt lost the Ford car he was driving in, by fire.

In some manner, the fire started under the hood and when he stopped the car and raised the hood it was in flames. The gas line got afire and they were forced away from fighting it.

The car was badly damaged and as it was left on the road overnight travelers coming along stripped it of some of the parts. Will Werttemberger was with him.
