On a warm afternoon in the late 1930”s, a fire broke out in a small building just north of Edgerton City Park. The fire destroyed four business buildings and some outdoor coal bins. There was no city water at that time, and no fire department. A bucket brigade was used. The St. Joseph Fire Department was called; in an effort to prevent the bank from being destroyed in the fire.
