MERRILL --- A gasoline lantern in the barn at the Julius Woller home exploded, causing the destruction of two barns, the 15-room dwelling, most of the farm machinery, 40 tons of hay and 700 bushels of grain.

Martin Woller, who was pumping up a tire at the time of the explosion, jumped into the automobile in an attempt to save it from the flames. The top caught fire and Woller barely escaped, kicking out the close curtains on the opposite side of the car. Cattle, horses, and furniture were removed from the buildings. Heat from the burning barns caused the house to catch fire, even though saturated with water.  

In the same barn in which the fire started, the father, Julius Woller, suffered a fatal fall a year ago.
