FISKE HOME FIRE
Merced Express, May 14, 1904
Fire in Yo Semite.
The home of George Fiske, Yo Semite's veteran photographer, was totally
destroyed by fire last Friday. The residence was at the foot of the
Glacier Point trail a mile from the village and fire protection. The
blaze started in the roof by sparks from the flue. The loss consists in
the house furnishings, lenses, cameras and a life collection of Coast
negatives, most of which cannot be replaced. Mr. Fiske is 70 years old.
He came to California from New Hampshire in the fifties and at one time
was a pony express rider. For thirty years he has been a well known
figure in Yo Semite, and has made an enviable reputation here and in
Europe by his mountain pictures.
