Morris & Lewis Buildings
LOSS ESTIMATED AT $5,000
Flames Start in Boiler Shed from Un
known Origin People on the Via
duct Endanger Structure.
The warehouses on the east side of
the Morris & Lewis junk yard, Twenty
fourth street and Second avenue, were
entirely destroyed by fire last night at
7:45, and the loss Is estimated at
$5,000. The fire originated in the boil
er shed and spread rapidly, taking a
southward course and destroying the
large warehouse on the south end of
the yard. The flames went west from
the large warehouse, but were under
control before any adjoining buildings
were damaged. The fire was discov
ered at 7:45. and the department noti
fied. The Central and No. 3 hose com
panies responded promptly, but the
flames had gained considerable head
way, and the firemen confined their
efforts to preventing the fire from
spreading. The intense heat caused
by the fire handicapped the work of
the department. A car filled with
scrap iron was standing on the side
track in flames, and this made the en
trance to the yard impossible. The
fire was under control in an hour after
the arrival of the department.
Origin In t nkuowu.
The cause of the ' fire is unknown,
though it started in the boiler shed
and the rags and paper which were
stored in the large shed in which is
located the boiler caused the flames
to spread rapidly. The shed was ablaze
before the fire department arrived, and
the entire yard was destroyed before
the flames were checked. The Cen
tral hose company worked on the fire
until 1 o'clock this morning in order
to prevent the fire breaking out agai'i
One stream was kept on the debris
until 8 o'clock this morning. The
buildings were insured for $1,000.

The flames shot high in the air, and
the illumination attracted throngs o'
people to the scene. Hundreds gath
ered at the viaduct, and witnessed the
spectacle from that vantage point. The
crowd became so large in a short timo
that there was grave danger of the
collapse of the weak part of the bridge.
Colonel S. E. Blunt learning of the
situation, and knowing the danger of
further damage to the already con
demned bridge, promptly came over
with a detail of the soldiers at the ar
senal. The bridge was quickly cleared
