    Notes 
    • Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, Sunday, January 14, 1968.
      Steuben County News Service - "Couple Flees Burning Home"
      Dairy farmer Shirley Burdett and his wife escaped to safety early yesterday with only the clothese they wore as fire destroyed their two story brick home on Route 70 at Big Creek, about four miles west of Howard. A lapse in telephone service delayed summoning fireman. Temperatures were below zero as Fremont and Howard fireman battled the blaze, finally reported at 6:45AM. A family spokesman said the couple was asleep in the downstairs bedroom and apparently was awakened by the roar of the flames. They got out of the house in their nightclothes through a front entrance, the spokesman said. Nothing was saved from the house, he said. The couple lived there alone. The Burdetts, after fleeing their home, drove to the nearby home of Stanley Drumm. Drumm, a son and son-in-law started for the Burdett place and encountered state police investigating an auto accident on Route 70. The trooper radioed for firefighters. The inside of the house was just one big ball of fire when we got there, said Fremont Fire Chief Richard Smith. He said cuase of the fire and amount of damages were not determined. The Burdetts were staying with a relative.
