Cause of Shoshone Street blaze unknown
A garage behind the home of Dick and Lois Asher on Shoshone Street was fully engulfed in flames at about 1:30 a.m. Sunday when neighbor John Wasden banged on their front door to warn them of the danger.
Frightened by the late-night, insistent banging, Lois Asher said she hesitated to answer the door at first — then she saw the light from the flames behind the house and realized what was happening.
