BURGUNDER HOME BURNED.
Nothing Sav.d--Souvenirs, Works
of Art, Valuables, All Go.
At 7 o'clock Wednesday morning the
clang O f , Uf . flre bH , BOlindw , thtl a|ftrm
that a fire was in progress. It Hnoa j e .
'doped that the Bfo Burgander home
on Perkins avenue whs roreloped in
flames, and a elomr inspection showed
th&t nothing could b» saved, the lorn
being complete. Mr Borgunder was the
first one of the fami'y to Ret up, bui!d
iog a fire in the kitchen stovK He iDcn
went to the living room and built a tire
there. Hearing fomefhiog f«U in the
kitchen he of ened th° door leading into
it and found the room enveloped in
flame and smoke That part of the
building, in fact, Keened to he a oihuh of
flime. He malted up stairs and called
to the rest of the family to escape . with
their livee, which they did, Mrs. Bar
eunder getting out wiih t-carctly more
than a wrap around b r.
The fire undoubnaly caught from a
defectiv flue in the kiicben, which must
have starred an soon as the tire in tbe
kitchen stove wai built. The fire de
partmpnt was some time in reaching the
Burgunder home with tbe apparatus,
owing to the f*ct that no teams were on
the street at that hour of the morning
and the hone carriages had to be hauled
the entire distance by hand, which was
hard as well as slow work. The fire
boys rendered good service, however,
when they reached there in preventing the
spread of the flames, as well as the de
struction of the beautiful trees and
shrubbery surrounding the house.
Nothing of any consequence was saved.
Keepsakes, souvenirs, works of art.
many of them highly prized, were de
voured with fiery thirst. Mre. Burgun
der was the proud possessor of pitchers
representing every nation of the world.
Some of these coat as much as $25
apiecp. She had been years in making
tbe collection and prized them highly.
They were reduced from choice specimens
of clay to aibep.
Tbe bouse was built 26 years ago this
spring. It was one of tbe fine homes of
Colfax. The loss will reach f 12,000 or
113,000, partially insured. It is under
stood that Mr. Burgunder will rebuild at
