Bosm, Nov. 29. At 8:15 yesterday morn
big flames were discovered in tbe mammoth
stone building at the corner of Kingston and
Bedford streets. This fat a building hitherto
thought to be fire-proof and recently built.
Notwithstanding this, it burned like n tinder
box, and tbe flamea rose hundreds ot feet into
the air. The fire apparatus which responded
was wholly incapable of handling the fire,
and they saw this fact very plainly when tbe
flamea began to leap up and out of the roof
and windows toward tbe buildings on the
other side ot the street and to the buildings
on Rovre place. A second alarm was sent in
at 8 .TO. At 8 o'clock a third alarm ws rung
In. In half an hour there was iamed n gen
sral alarm, which brought apratua from
Cambridge, Somnterrille, and Chelsea.
Kprvad of the Flautee.
From tbe very start there was little hope
f the fire being stopped before it bad con
sumed several buildings. Brown, Durell &
Co.s fine bhvk waa soon a heap ot glowing
ruins, upon w hove edge stood a steamer,
an aerial ladder and a hose carnage which
had been atandonnt in hot haste at tlie time
the building collapsed. The old building. SO
Kingston street, now began to libt up, and
the Brainerd & Armstrong Co. 'a building at
3.1 w as Just catching. A group of iej.rate
fire-flchter were being forced to recede inch
by inch. Startling stories were all.wt tbat
men had been caught in the falling w alls and
of other fatal accidents, but there was no
time to verify these reports.
Asaiataaeo from Cambridge.
Tbe building occupied by Bradford Thomas,
and the Aims building were involved in tbe
general dent ruction. Eastward tbe fire
at !:: had reached tbe epdinan building
on the corner of Lincoln and Ifradford
streets, while towards Washington street its
limit at the same time was Chauncey street.
Just la-fiare 10 o'clock awtauce reached
the sene from Cambridge both in engines
and hook and Udder trucks. From the build
ing of Brown & Purell, where the tire
caught, it spread arrow the street and back
through the burning builduig into Chauncev
street. In leaa than ten minute the flames
were tearing intotbe mammoth atore building
occupied by William & Co. on tbe next cor
ner anntb, and into Cluett, K.oonlV.
building.
A Threatealne Conflagration.
From the other side it caught alni.M at
once upon the buildings on Rowe place, and
the wiud favored tbe supposition that the
whole dry goods dutri.-t was iloomrsL Al
ready every buildiug bad gone from Bedford
street, along Kingston and Chauncey rfreeta,
and the flame were eating up all those on
the south aide of Rowe pla.-e. On tbe east
side of Chauncey street were buildings, all of
the mammoth structures occupied aa w hole
sale houses in the dry goods and fancy goods
trade, and every endeavor waa made to keep
them from catching tire. Thia endeavor was
futile, however, and tbe flaiu ru-bed on in
both directions.
Two Acre Ua ened Over.
A Knit 11 ' a view from the top of tbe
Adams boti-a allowed that tbe tire was under
control. About two acres ot property had
been destroyeiL A subsequent walk around
tha section roped off by the police confirmed
thia estimate. At t p. tu. seventy-five steam
ers surrounded the fir Tbe flames burned
nearly up to the edge of the burned dUtnct
ot the great Are ot 1872, but did not euter iU
The fire did not quite reach Sumner street
nor Lincoln street, but it burned half way
through the block bounded by Kingston,
Huoincr ami Bedford street, aud also that
adjoining. Showers of eiiark were driven
ahead of the thuues, principally toward tie
great dry goods stores on aahuigton street.
The lleaveaa Lent Assistance.
The isaiked condition of the roof, bow
ever, and the pouring rain, extinguished the
sparks before they could do any damage. A
strong in -shore w ina was blowing all the
niornuig, and the storm signals were dis
played irom the signal otCos roof. There is
little doubt but that for the deluge which
poured from the clouds tbe fire would have
wept through to the Common. Tbe beat
from tbe fire in the earlier hours was strong
enough to be painful to the fau of specta
tors a hundred yards or more distant, and
Um flames reached as high again aa the tops
of tin six and seven story buil.bnga which
were being consumed.
Hro-Proof Buildings Licked I .
Scsues w ituesaed by the writer during the
great tire here in ll?i and in the recent Lyun
fire were re-enacted at 111 a. m , and there
seemed no ruaaon to hope t bat the conflagra
tion could be checked until It had swept the
entire district Modern "fire-proof build
ings like the handsome stone Ames building
at Bedford and Kingston streets, built only
four or five years ago after the most approved
Are resist nig plana, were licked up with a
rush and a roar at apparently tbe same ap
palling speed that accomplished tbe same re
sult with the wooden shoe factories at Lynn
on Tuesday.
Weocraphy of the Fire.
Tbe geography ot the fire ia as follows:
Starting in the sii-tory granite building
owned by Jordan. Marsh & Co., and occu
pied by Brown, Durrell & Co., dry goods
rtaeleri at Bodturd and Kingston streets, it
spread to the shoe and leather exchange
building, another large granite structure
adjoining on Bedford street; thence across
Bedford street to the opposite corner ; thence
across Kingston street aud along Bedford to
Chaunsey street, w here It was stopped In the
tore of Farley, Harvey & Co , the upper
stories of w hich were burned. Three stores
along Chauncey street toward Summer ware
burned. On the south side of Bedford street
the flamea Jumped astrosa Kingston street
from Brown, IurfeU & Co. to a big sand
stone building owned by F. L. Awes, and
occupied by Taylor Bros, and thia was eon-
A Uraulte Block Destroyed.
The great granite building know n as the
Nevlne block, at the corner of Chauncey
street, was the next victim of the fiaioes.and
tbe entire block clear around Rowe place
to Kingston street w as consumed. Crossing
Chauncey street, the fire soon bad good
hold on all the stores which are inclosed in
Exeter place, a small streut running from
Harrison avenue to Chauncey stre-L. Hera
the firemen got control. At Kowe place the
fire was partially checked from going toward
Essex street, but quickly moved toward the
opposite stile to the immense Allen and Lar
rabee buildings.occupying tbe square betw een
Bedford street, Harrison avenue exb-nsion
and Exeter plai-e, at which point their fur
ther progress was cbeckud.
A Terrible Loss.
The loss by the Ore is estimated at S'i.ouO,
00U. There are about UUO firms burned out
and luu agents of New York and western
firms have thoir headquarters destroyed.
Tbe seventy-nine insurance companies I nown
to be InteresUsi carry an aggregate insur
ance of 2,flO0,0u0 on the property.
Two firemen, Daniel Buckley and Frank
P. Locker, have been missing since early In
tbe morning. They were last seen on the
Brown, Durrell building. Several firemen
w bo aaw them on the building report an ex
plosion of bot air and their own narrow es
cape, and are of tbe opinion that the men
were overcome and uuable to save them
selves. Great Damage to Overhead Wires.
All over tbe burned du.trkt ran tbe wires
of almost every electric company in tbe city
and on the higher buildings especially the
wires were a perfect net work before tbs
fire. The damage done to these can hardly
be estimated. Cabke of electric wires, single
wires aud whole poles of wires are now
hanging in every street, alley, and area along
Easex street. For a block back from Wash
ington the wires are mostly standing and In
good condition, but within tlie territory
bounded by Bummer, Lincoln, Essex and
Chauncey streets every one ia down or hang
ing in long festoons from the gaplnrwnd
blackened walla.
Brass Reeewera at Work.
Police Sergt Kimball, Patrolman Xlaynee

women and n man from the upper floor of
the building at Kingston and Bedford streeta.
