Cochrane history focuses on man’s best friend and cars in Lake Commando

A dog once again proved to be a family’s best friend when he alerted them about a garage fire in Glackmeyer Township. In the November 1983 edition of the Northland Post the barking dog woke up the boarder that was staying at the house about the fire.

The homeowner says the boarder thought it was a good idea to go check and noticed the fire. He ran and alerted the family so they could easily get out.

The homeowner says the fire department was quick to respond to the fire and used water from a nearby pool and fire extinguishers to douse the blaze.

It’s a New Liskeard man who is continuing his attempt to get permission from town council to remove old cars from Lake Commando.

Thomas Lake says scuba divers have found about 10 cars that were sunk about 30 years ago. He adds that some are covered with sediment and serve no support function. Mayor Raymond Fortier says the cars can’t be removed until council is assured that it’s safe to remove the cars and no issues with the Railway Street roadbed.

As always we want to thank the Cochrane Public Library for their help with our continuing history segments every Monday.
