The Langruth Hotel burned down on the morning of Jan 4, 2006 at about 1:30am. It was totally gone in about one hour. Apparently the hydro had been disconnected so arson is suspected. The previous owner had started to gut it to fix it up but he had stopped all work. He also didn't pay his taxes, so it went back to the municipality who were planning to tear it down in the spring. Fire fighters, police and ambulance were on the scene but it was too far gone to stop, so they let it burn except for spraying foam on the old Hardware Store and the roof of the garage. The snow on both roofs helped. There was no wind and with the stucco walls, the fire burn straight up so there was no side damage except for a few ashes around the gas station. Even the trees on the south side are okay. No one was evacuated although the residents in the retirement home behind the hotel were awakened just in case. Tom Bales is credited for noticing the smoke rising from the hotel and calling 911. To see pictures, click here.
