|Fire destroys Hollandale home|
|A fire of undetermined origin destroyed a home in Hollandale, destroying it and the personal belongings of a single father of five children.
Luckily Chris Mattison and his five children were on the way home from a vacation in Florida when the fire destroyed the house he had spent the last 10 years fixing up for a home for him and his children. The Pecatonica school system has set up a savings account at the Farmers Savings Bank in Hollandale. If you would like to donate, please make your checks payable to the "M Family Fund." The Woodford State Bank branch location in Blanchardville will also keep a collection can that will be donated to the family.|
