OIly Slight :lhiage Done, However,
by Afternooi Blaze on Roof.
Washington, Feb. 8.-1lazing scat
folding and repair materials, accoi
panied by the exiplosion of a barrel of
kerosene on the roof of the treasury
building, threatened the structure for
half an hour late today until the lire
was brought under control with
nearly every engine company in fhe
dlow IItocn secti in action. A blue
print laboratory and a amall contrac
tor's shack on the roof were destroyed.
Treasu y olficials estimated that the
damage was slight, but no figure on
the loss from fire and owater was avail
able tonight. Thousands of afternoon
shoppeds were attracted by dense
clouds of smoke pierced by high
flames thrown up when the blaze
reached n supply of tar and tar paper.
Treasury enbployees, who left , the
building in orderly imanner after the
alarm was sounded, Joined the spec
tators while the firemen went about
The millions of -Lllars of the na
tion's treasure stored in the building
was guarded by a cordon of United
States marines ind secret service
men. No one was injured and no
valuable blue prints were destroyed.
according to J. A. Wetmore, super
vising architect of the treasury, and
William Y. Brady, superintendent of
construction. Six clerks in theqrint
room, nyhen the fire started, saved all
the important plans before they left.
The print rooni was situated directly
above the supervising architect's of
fice, where plans for government
buildings are drawn. Repalir work
has been iproceeding on the roof of
the structure for several months.
