Chicago, Feb. IE. Fire partly de
stroyed the Brevoort House, 143-145
Madison street, at an early hour Tues
day, causing a loss ot $100,000 to the
building and hotel furnishings and
forcing 1B0 guests to make n- hurrll
departure. The flames, which burned
for noarly an hour, burst through the
roof of tho building after tho fire was
thought to have been extlngulshol
Tho fire, which started from crossed
electric light wires about 2:30 o'clock,
was discovered by a bell boy, who wna
almost overcome by smoke, but arous
ed tho guests and employes of the ho
tel. When tho llremcn reached the
sceno the flames had eaten their way
through the third floor and hod made
considerable progress upward through
tha walls. The smoke, which w.w
dense, hampered the firemen hi their
work, while the guests were scamper
ing by every avenue of escape to reach
a place of safety, and the hotel em
ployes were kept busy In arousing
them by telephones In the rooms.
While fighting the flames In the ho
tel barroom three firemen were Injur
ed, one seriously, by the collapse of
the celling. The fire won mostly con
fined to tho roar of the building, which
wasjfutted from basement to roof
The firemen were sent to the roof
?f tl,e raSae and tons of wo-
ter were poured onto the burning
Shortly after the first detachment
ice covered tho walls of the build
ing and the long lead of hose carried
by the firemen became Imbedded In
tho Ice. Because of the cold the Ore
men worked In relays.
As the firemen with their hose came
running through the halls the guests
came pouring out of their rooms and
the halls were filled with excited
nueits, In all stages of undress, hasten
ing to the office and the street. The
employes ot the hotel behaved in the
most admirable fashion and lent every
assistance to the people as they cainf
running down the stairs and Into the
elevators. They were assured that
there was no Immediate danger and
that there was ample time for all to
escapo without trouble.
Some few women ran Into Madison
street in scanty clothing, and believing
that the fire was amounting to noth
ing, returned to the hotel to finish
dressing. The rapid Increase In the
number of engines called to the scene
alarmed them once more, however, and
they fled to the street. A number of

ico-iuisuuu, wnero mcy wore intra jur.
and the watchmen In a number ot
office buddings adjoining the Brevoort
threw open their doors and allowed
the frightened guests' of the hotel to
seek shelter In the hallways.
A number of guests ventured down
the fire escapes. Among them were
Mr. and Mrs. F. II. Bortx of Rochester,
N. Y. They jumped ten feet from the
lower end of the fire eecape to the
ground and were considerably" bruised.
The police took them to the central
detail office In the city hall. Mr. and
Mrs, A. P. Campbell of Marltn, Tex.,
also went downC Are escape.
W. D. Howard, In room !14, was
partly overcome by smoke and could
not be aroused until an employe of the
hotel had dragged htm from his bed
and half way across his room. O. W
.Tarr of this city and O. A. Taylor of
Texas, who occupied rooms on the
second floor, were almost overcome
and reached the street only with dif
