FIRE IN ORANGEBURG.
Alhretch Stables Completely Destroy?
ed by Flames.
Orangeburg, Nov. 29.?Early this
morning Orangeburg suffered another
big conflagration, resulting in approx?
imately a $10,000 loss. Shortly before
8 a. m. the fire was discovered by
one of the city's patrolmen and the
alarm was sent In. When discovered
the flames had practically devoured
the interior of the West End livery
stable on BrOUghton street, owned
and conducted by Julius H. All.retell.
A fair breeze was blowing hi this time
and the fire leaped to adjoining build?
ings. The fire was in tha centre of a
number of frame structures and the
flames spread rapidly.
The work of the local fire depart?
ment was splendid, as the large frame
building occupied by the grain and
produce firm of Ayers & Williams was
within 10 feet of one of the destroy?
ed buildings and was hardly scorch?
ed. The buildings owned by J. W.
Smoak and B. B. Owen were just
across the street and in close proxim?
ity to the fire but were burned only
The brunt of the loss fell upon Mr.
Albretch, whose loss has been esti?
mated at $8,000. Ten of his own
horses were burned to death, also one
that was boarding there, and all his
many fine buggies and harness, near- ]
ly $2,000 worth of grain and pro?
visions, his well equipped buildings
and other effects were destroyed. Mr.
Albretch carried only $1,500 insur?
ance on his main building. The oth?
er losers were Abial Lathrop, one un?
occupied dwelling house; Eustus Wil?
liams, stock of groceries, loss $500,
not including insurance; John McNa
mara, two-story frame store building;
Mrs. David Ayers, sing'.e story frame
bullding; J. \V. Smoak, building dam?
aged $100; B. B. Owen, building
damaged about $100; Ayers & Wil?
liams, warehouse full of baled hay.
Negroes occupying the buildings
burned or damaged also lost.
