A Morning Fire

About seven o’clock Saturday morning fire broke out in the wing of a stone building on Benham street. The blaze was discovered by Ben Zimmerman and Chas. Dascomb, who gave the alarm and aroused the occupant of the building who was apparently not aware of the fire. In a few minutes the wooden wing of the building was enveloped in flames and the roof of the stone structure took fire. The fire company responded promptly and soon had a stream on the building. However, the roof of the stone building was partly burned before the fire was put out.
