FIRE IN A FACTORY
Damage of $1,500 at Tri-City
ORIGIN FLAMES NOT KNOWN
Breaks Out Suddenly in a Basket of
Clothing in Rear of
Damage of $1,500 was caused by a
fire in the factory of the Tri-City Re
galia company, 1511 Third avenue, this
morning. The fire started from un
known origin in a basket of masquer
ade suits stored in an aisle between
two partitions at the rear of the of
fice, and before the department cou!d
be summoned had worked its way
through the both partitions and into
the office and workroom.
Twenty young women employed as
seamstresses In the operations of the
machines escaped unharmed through
a side door leading into the alley.
They were required to jump a consid
erable distance, but the men connect
ed with the establishment came to
their assistance, and they were gotten
out without suffering more than se
vere fright. They also saved their
lllasr In Kurloua Oar.
The stock in the regalia factory
mostly is of an inflammable character
and the flames were raging furiously
when the department arrived a few
moments after the call had been giv
en, the heat breaking both plate glass
windows at the front, the fragments
falling on the sidewalk and barely
missing the heads of the firemen and
spectators. The glass in the office par
titions was also broken by the heat.
The smoke that arose when the wat
er came in contact with the burning
clothing was so thick that it was with
difficulty the firemen could find a po
sition of vantage from which to direct
the streams of water and the chemi
cals. Several persons who were as
sisting in the removal of the records
of the company were almost overcome
by the smoke. One young man
sprained his wrist.
f'ooflnrtl to One Floor.
The Cre was confined to the regalia
factory on the first floor, no damage
being done to the upper floors or the
portion of the building occupied by the
R. N. A. printing department. The
greatest damage was done in the of
fice, although the flames worked their
vay back to the work room and de
stroyed some stock, and the smoke and
water left truces that will necessitate
some repairs. W. A. Andersch. mana
ger of the regalia company, stated it
would not be possible to determine the
loss to his firm until after there had
been an inventory of the stock. He
thought the loss would be about $1,000.
The stock is insured. The building,
which was damaged probably $500. is
owned by T. P. Rosenfield. The build
ing is insured.

The fire department was called at
