Fireworks Cause Stable Fire

On July 2, 1900 at 9:00 a.m. an alarm of fire was sounded. This time it was a stable fire in Church Alley, on the lot of S. A. Angle. The horse team of W. M. Hykes & Bro. hauled the Cumberland Valley’s hose reel to the scene in double time and the Vigilant Hose reel soon followed. When firemen arrived and opened the doors the inside was a sea of flames. A hose stream was soon played on the blaze and it was quickly subdued. The stable remained standing but it was a total loss. A damage estimate was not available. Children playing with fireworks caused the fire.

I guess by know you can tell blogger is still not working. I am also not sure If I will have an Internet connection next week. Post are prepared and uploaded for scheduled postings. I hope you all are still out there, nothing like someone that can't see without glasses pecking away on an I-touch.
