Larouche Farm Home Destroyed

This story was published by The Ypsilanti Daily Press on Friday, September 16, 1932. The farm home, south of Ypsilanti, occupied by Rod Larouche, burned to the ground Thursday afternoon, with a loss of approximately $2,500. A second building nearby, just under construction, was also burned. The fire broke out while Mr. Larouche was alone. Although he had been ill, he managed to break a window and get out, and a physician in the crowd which soon gathered, cared for him temporarily. The family is staying with friends until further arrangements can be made.
