Washington, May 10. Fire swept
away a wholo block of commercial
buildings opposite tho Smithsonian In
stitution soon after eight o'clock Mon
day evening. Tho lives of at least
three firemen wcro crushed out by fall
ing walls. Tho loss will exceed 8200,
000. The buildings covering the. block
adjoining the center market, consti
tutes practically ho cntlro commission
and wholesalo produce business of
Washington. From seven to eight
o'clock tho district was visited- by one
of tho most terrific thunderstorms in
years, and, it is thought, lightning
traveling on telegraph wires entered a
Postal Telegraph sub station and
started tho flames which rapidly spread
through the highly inflammable ma
terials in tho stores fronting on Louisi
ana avenue, Ninth, Tenth nnd D.
streets. In a few minutes,
under general alarm orders, tho
entire, firo department commenco its
efforts to check the fire's spread, but
exploding barrels of kerosene and gas
oline drove them off and led them to
direct their energies to preventing tho
flames from crossing the streets to tho
neighboring squares. While tho fire
men of No. 8 engine wore working a
hose through one of tho old
buildings, tho roof fell without
warning, burying them in the
ruins. The wrecked building at
once began burning furiously and any
attempt at rescue wns beyond question.
Not until an hour later had the flames
sufllciently subsided at this point for
tho firemen to begin clearing away tho
debris. Then three men, Joe Mulhall,
Donaldson and Kennedy, were taken
out and removed to the Providence
Later information is to tho effect that
Firemen Giles and Griffin aro dead and
that Fireman Mulhall, McElroy, Kepp
ler and Kennedy arc dangerously and
perhaps fatally injured. Four others
aro known to be in the ruins and
several others are missing, and
search is being continued late
into the night for them. This fire is
one of tho worst calamities that has
over visited Washington and is tho
only one of its kind since tho notori
ous Knox fire of about two years ago.
The buildings that were burned
were comparatively of binall value,
though quite a whole block of
them were swept out of exist
ence. The full extent of tho
terrible calamities that attended the
conflagration was not known until a
late hour and tho neighborhood sur
rounding the scene was thronged up
to a long time after midnight by ex
cited and sympathising groups of citi
zens, many of whom wcro friends and
neighbors of the unfortunate men
Washington, May 10. The bodies of
Fireman Thomas Conway, of engine
company No. 0, and Thomas A. Grflin,
of truck H, were recovered from the
ruins of Monday night's disastrous
conflagration about five o'clock Tues
day morning, after six hours' search.
The list of fatalities was increased
to four Tuesday when Fireman Joseph
Mulhall, of engine company No. 8,
died at Providenco hospital from burns
received early in the evening before
the fire had gainedfull headway.
