Saddler Shop Damaged By Fire

On September 21, 1902 at 7:00 a.m. Bridges Building, West Main Street. A fire of unknown origin burnt stock in a saddler shop; smoke and water damaged the other goods. Damages were estimated at $800. The Cumberland Valley was on the scene quickly and played a steam of water in the room but had trouble locating the blaze because of the smoke. The Vigilant Hose and Cumberland Valley Hose companies answered the alarm.
