BIG AMERICAN VICTORY
TURNED OUT GAS
Method Employed by Firemen When
Called to Prospect Street House.
A burning piece of pork in a ket
tle on a gas stove was the cause of
a bell alarm rung in at box 27, pn
Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock. .
The "fire" occurred in the home of
Mrs. Jane Redman on the corner of
Prospect and Chestnut streets. Mrs.
Redman works in the mill and when
she left at noon, thought she turned
the gas off under the kettle, but evi
dently did not, for the water boiled
out in the kettle, and then the meat
began to burn. The house was filled
with smoke and it poured out of one
of the windows. An alarm was rung
in. but all the firemen had to do was
to turn out the gas, throw the kettle
out and open several windows.
