BrrFALO,Dec. 21.^One of the^most destructive fires that has visited^Buffalo for a long time occurred this^afternoon shortly before five o'clock.^Passers by noticed a volume of smoke^issuing from the roof of the magnifi^^cent new building ot Jas D. Warren,^proprietor of the Commercial Adrtr-^titer, cornet of Washington and North^Division streets. Almost immediately^thereafter bright flames shot up in^view. The alaim was sent to the^engine house a Mock away, and the^firemen arrived, with the chemical op^^erators. The alarm was sent to their^houses in the vicinity, by this means^a good deal of valuable time was lost.^It was felly twenty minutes before^the first stream was turned on. An^immense crowd assembled in the^streets and impelled the work of thj^firemeu. The flames lighted up the^sky for miles around. Under the^street on Main street, atsiut a block^away, are three large cisterns con^^taining a supply of water aiid built^expressly for use in the event of a^large tire where one of them opened.^A tremendous explosion of gas fol^^lowed, blowing one man fully twenty^feet, and knocking down several. The^Injured man was taken to the hospital.^In about an hour after the fire started^the roof of the Masonic Temple, a^splendid building, was in flames. This^structure was occupied by various^Masonic orders and the large whole^^sale grocery house of Miller, Grener^4 Co. In a short time the top flttor^was a mass of fire. Fortunately there^was no wind blowing. At seven^o'clock the first named building was^entirely gutted, only ihe walls remain^^ing Two floors of the Masonic Temple^were burned liefore the firemen ob^^tained the mastery. The Commercial^building has a frontage on Washing^^ton street of over loo feet, and cost^$75,000. One-half was occupied by^the Commercial Ad*trli*tr and the^other half by ths large wholesale^and saddlery house of Harvey D.^Hlakslee. In the rear was a large^building occupied by the Jt-wett^Manufacturing company for box manu^^factory, and manufacturing of bird^cages and other articles. Although^considerably damaged by tire ami^water, this building was saved. The^Are originatsd iu the engraving room,^and was caused by the employe allow^^ing some irons which he had been us^^ing for waxing sheet plate, for trans^^fer to catch in a gas jet. It is supposed^tliat in Ins excitement he threw the^iron down and they ignited tome varn^^ished slates. Nothing was saved^The flies of the Advertinr for fifty^years were lost. When the alarm^was given, the employes i ir bed from^the building, abandoning coats ami^hats. Those in the job department,^owing to the smoke, were unable to^make their way down stairs, got on^the roof and ciawled along to Jewell^building, when they defended in^safety. Several of the men fainted^when they found they were safe. Out^of 110 employes In the building, oi ly^one man. Win. Mahony. was injured.^He was badly burned. Loss of stock,^furniture and bid ding, it c-timated^at $175,000; Insurance, $125 000.^Blakealee's loss is estimated at $70..^000; insurant*. $50,000. Mill r,^Greuer k Co's building was one of the^finest buildings In the city, and was^erected In 1876, sta cost of $150,000^Theeai|^ets ami furniture of the vari^^ous rooms cost $120 0 0. ami the Jewels^and other iwrapbernslla. $25,000 more,^which Is a to ti toes.
