FLAMES THREATEN
WEST BROWNSVILLE
WITH DESTRUCTION
Gasoline Explosion Starts
Fire Which Spreads Rap
idly Through Pennsylvania
Town.
BROWNSVILLE, Pa.. Nov. 7.-A ter
rific explosion of gasoline In the West
Brownsvlllo Dyeing and Cleaning Works
in the basement of tho Aubrey Hotel at
West Brownsville, shortly before 10
o'clock this morning partly wrecked the
building and started a flro which threat
ens to destroy the town.
Without fire protection the town Is at
the mercy of the fire, which Is sweeping
through the business section with great
rapidity. The Aubrey Hotel was soon a
heap of ashes and the Atwood Hotel, a
three-story modern brick structure, fell a
prey to the raging flames soon after tho
explosion.
Two dwellings In the rear of the hotels
were set afire by burning embers awl
burned to the ground and the blaze
spread to the Diamond Building, owned
by the Diamond Coal and Coke Com
pany. Calls were hurriedly sent to Callforpla
and Untontown for fire companies and
both towns responded. A special train
over the Pennsylvania Railroad took the
Unlontown apparatus to West Browns
ville. With a roar that could be heard for
miles around, a huge gasoline tank ex
ploded, throwing burning gasoline several
hundred feet In the air and throughout
tho vicinity. Crowds of spectators, warned
to leave the scene, but who stood by,
were caught under the rain of the burn
ing fluid. Their cries added confusion to
the already panic-stricken townspeople,
and those who .were burned rushed from
the scene. Their names were not learned.
The gasollno Ignited other buildings in
the vicinity, and the centre of the town
at noon was a raging furnace, with ap
parently no chance to check the progress
of the flames. Dynamite was resorted
to in Rn effort to check the flre, but had
little effect, as the burning embers, flying
through the air, Ignited the wrecked
buildings and only added to the area of
the section ablaze,
A Negro, tho sole occupant of the dye
ing and cleaning establishment when the
first explosion occurred, is missing.
The Greek Cathollo Church, recently
built, was In the path of tho flames and
was burned to the ground.

This morning at eight o'clock the re
