Earl Canham remembers the summer day in 1951 when he and his brother-in-law were spraying orchards on their Townline Road farm.

Looking toward Ridge Road they spotted smoke and knew something was wrong. “We drove our equipment to the Ridge and found a house on fire,” said Canham.

As was customary with most rural areas, they had no fire company and relied on Medina, who had two men and a truck which carried very little water.
