From The Grand Forks Daily Herald, Grand Forks, ND, USA, Sunday, 8 November 1914, page 1, col 5:

"The Menge boy and Olson girl and another child were found dead after the fire had rolled past. A Menge brother and Olson sister and another child lived until 11 o'clock last evening, their teacher [Gladys Hollister of Mapleton, IA] expiring two hours earlier. The teacher and children were huddled down together on the grassy ground a short distance from a plowed field, their clothing entirely burned.

" . . . The fire victims all lived eight and ten miles southwest of this place [Belfield, ND].

"The Olson girl and Menge boy were brought to Belfield about two hours before they died. The teacher and the other four victims [including Francis Pike] were brought in this morning. The children were from six to fourteen years of age.

"The fire spent its force during the night after the thirty mile an hour wind had abated. The property damage may reach $50,000. No such calamity has ever visited southwestern North Dakota."
