May, 1931 - May 1931

A house in Shandwick, belonging to a widow Mrs. Ross  and her 4 sons and also Mr. and Mrs MacAngus and their young family of 2, was destroyed by fire. By the time the fire was seen the thatch on the roof had caught and although many helpers fought the blaze the house was unsaveable. They did however manage to stop the fire moving to neighbouring properties.
