Baum & Bro's. magnificent store building was soon a mass of ruins. When the flames in the Baum building reached their height the timid gale from the south stiffened into a stout breeze and a storm of fire beat against the south wall of E. B.

The story from Sept. 30, 1909 called it one of the worst floods in the history of Northern Maine. It affected the counties of Aroostook, Penobscot, Piscataquis, Somerset, and Washington. It washed out many railroad lines, roads and bridges. Some of the more interesting stories in the paper were about the possibility of the dam bursting at Katahdin Iron Works and with so many logs clogging the rising rivers that in Brownville, 100 men spent two days dynamiting the logs that had backed up at the bridge. The log jams also made the flooding worse by causing the water to backup in flatlands, other streams, lakes and ponds. The thing noted by the paper that this rain affected the potato harvesting, but at the same time, it had been a very dry season and the rain was badly needed to restore the normal levels of water.
