Glen O. Grice, county coroner, was called to Deary yesterday evening to investigate the death of Ole Bjorklund, aged 73, who dropped dead while fighting fire near Deary. The aged farmer lives near the Dolberg saw mill, and when a Washington, Idaho & Montana train went by his place a spark set fire to the grass, he went out with his sons to fight the fire, and became exhausted or overheated and fell dead in the woods. Coroner Grice investigated, took testimony of witnesses and decided that no inquest was necessary. The aged man, who is a pioneer of that section, leaves a family of grown children. His death was pronounced as due directly to the heat, supplemented by the excitement.
