The building in which the Ore started Is one
' ot three big buildings, 182,124 and 120
Wooster street, extending back towards
Greene street nearly one hundred feet
and occupied principally by a papcrbox fac
tory and small tailoring concerns.
The building xo. 120 is ono door from the
corner of Prince street.
i Tho appearance of smoke issuing from the
i first floor ot tho building attracted tho at-
tentlon ot Sergt. Harry, on duty In tho l'rlnce
; street station, directly across tho street.
He sent out an alarm and roused there

The flames soon spread through tho build
ing and to Nos. 124 ana 122.
Crowds began to pour into Wooster and
l'rlnce streets and tho wildest excitement
Ibe poopio in tho burning buildings rushed
into the street, and those in the upper stories
ran over tho roots ot tho adjoining bouses.

or then arose that than werwover oas
hundred girls in tbe paper-boi factory at the
time tho lire broke out.
Next it was rumored that nearly halt ot
them bad been caught In the building and
('apt. Mccullagu sent a roundsman and a
squad of policemen around tho neighborhood
to scrlfy the report.
A few minutes later two policemen brought
Into lh station-house Nary Kllon Hani)-,
whose face and clothing were burned.
Dr. Edward J. Donlln, of Houston streot,
examined the girl and lound that her injuries
were probably fatal.
My this time reports of more persons being
burned and otherwise Injured caused capt.
McCullagh to summon ambulances from BU
Vincent's and the Mew York Hospitals, and
with tbe arrival of tbt ambulances camead
dltlonal crowds of men, women and children.
At 10.40 o'clock a portion of the rear wall
ot tbe Wooster street buildings fell, and
Firemth Langwasser, who, with another
fireman, was directing a stream, went down
Several brotber-nrcmen went to his as
sistance and extricated blm from tbe mass of
debris. He was found to be suffering from
burns and cuts and bruises, and he was taken
in an ambulance to St. Vincent's Uojpltal.
At tbe time it was thought tbat the other
fireman had been caught by the falling wall,
but he was afterwards found to hayo saved
himself bj jumping.
During all tbls time the fire raged with
such lury that the firemen began to fear that
It would spread to the buildings Nos. 107,
100 and 111 Oreebe street, directly In tbe
rear ot the Wooster street buildings.
Flying sparks, together with tho Intense
heat, bad already melted the tin covering on
tbe root of the stfttlon-house. The bricks on
the l'rlnce street side of tho building were
scorching rapidly and It was necessary to
keep a constsnt stream on tho building to
prevent lurther damage.
At ll o'clock the firemen were re-enforccd
by two more engines from uptown, and tbo
work of saving the buildings in the neighbor
hood tbat stood In danger ot Igniting from
filing sparks was vigorously pusbed forward.

At 11.40 o'clock there were not less tban

MeonUlle Cbluf Donner stood at the
corner and watched his men struggling to
master greater conflagration In the Wooster
streot hives of Industry, and struggling t
save tbe corner building, in which was tbe
saloon ot Charles Kern.
As Bonner stood watching, forces ot men
from Bngtnes 27 and 33, who had mounted to
the roofs ot the buildings and were pouring a
flood Into tho seething cauldron below, there
came a warning r-r-lff I
Fall of tbe Walla.
There was a cry from on the roof and a re
sponding sbrlck from the gathered thousands
on the street as tbey scattered, and then
there was a mighty roar and a crash.
The front walls of No. 122, 124 and 120
Wooster street had fallen in a heap.
Fiom tbe heap aroso a great black cloud of
dust, but ere It bad cleared away tbo firemen
on the street were rushing pell-mell upun the

the sun tried to peep through tbe clouds and

only for a few moments did It succeed. Then
It bid again behind tho leaden-hued clouds.
Early In tho day peonlo commenced gather

Besides tbe great loss to the stockholders ot s 'sjfl
tbe Opero-House, a vast amount of valuable n-,9
scenery, properties and costumes, which It ,AH
has taken years to accumulate, have been fSu
totally destroyed, together wltb all tbe must- H

belonged to the Opera-Housc. 9
A very largo part ot the scenery and cos- . .j'jH
