Taranaki Herald 6 May 1911:
At 2.50 a.m. yesterday morning a fire occurred in a six-roomed house owned and occupied by Mr. Wm. Rowe, of Glenavon, near Waiwakaiho. The house was burned to the ground, nothing being saved. Mr. Rowe just escaped out of a back window in scanty attire as the flames broke into the room. Amongst the things burned were eleven 1 notes, 80s in gold, and a new bicycle. The insurance on the house was 250 in the Ocean Fire Insurance and 75 on the furniture in the same office.
