TWO DIE IN FIRE
r- Heavy Property Loss When Three,
Story Brick Building
Spartanburg, Feb. 9.--Fire here to
- day destroyed a three-story brick
building on South Liberty street own
ed by T. B. Ross, resulting in a heavy
property loss and the death of two
persons, Perry Burnett and his daugh
ter, Miss Lila Burnett, who occupied
rooms on the second story of the
building. The first floor of the build
ing was occupied by the T. B. Ross
Wood Working Plant and by Burnett
& Garlington, who had stored in their
portion of the building a number of
automobiles. Mr. Ross is said to
have sustained a loss amounting to
$30,000 with insurance of less than
$10,000. Burnett & Garlington's loss
of $20,000 is said to have been prac
Mr. Burnett and his daughter, who
occupied rooms on the second story
of the building, were awakened by
other roomers in the house, and until
the building was completely enveloped
in flames, it was thought they had
left the structure. Their charred
bodies were found in the ruins to
day. Mr. Burnett was sixty-four years
of age and his daughter twenty. He
was a brother of Judge J. J. Burnett,
of this city, and of E. Bell Burnett, of
Columbia. A falling wall of the build
ing demolished a frame residence
standing next door. While the fire
department was fighting the fire on
Liberty street, a second fire broke out
on Spring street at the residence of
J. F. McDowell. This building was
not greatly damaged.
