NEWSPAPER ARTICLE - The Courier; Waterloo, Iowa; Wednesday, May 15, 1974; Page 14 (Newspapers.com)

Fire Razes home in Cedar Falls (Courier News Bureau)
CEDAR FALLS -- The James Kitzmiller home at 3120 Big Woods Rd. was consumed by fire early Wednesday morning despite fire department efforts to save the two-story frame structure.
Fire chief Dale Holmes said fireman received an alarm at 2:11 a.m. Wednesday but by the time firemen arrived the house was already enveloped in flames.
Kitzmiller, who had been in the home with his wife and teenage son, told firemen he awakened during the night and smelled smoke.
He roused the family and they ran outside for safety, but Kitzmiller told fire officials he re-entered the house to telephone for assistance.
When firemen arrived they were able to salvage most of the family's furniture except that placed in the kitchen and dining room areas where the fire apparently started.
Those room, Holmes daid, "were gone before we got there."
Holmes said the Kitzmiller residence was located in an area north of the city water mains, so fire engines had to haul tanks of water to combat the blaze. He said some 5,600 gallons of water was transported and used during the more than four hours it took to control the blaze.
Holmes said the cause of the blaze is not yet known but that investigation is continuing.
The extent of loss from the fire is not known yet either, Holmes said, but he said he believes the home will be declared a total loss.
The Kitzmiller family has moved in with relatives after the loss of their home.
