$25,000 Fire Believed to H&v*
Started In Oil House—Fire
men Given Hard Fight
Nearly 1,000 animals —sheep, hogs
and a few cows—were burned to
death when trapped in their pens by
a sudden, fierce blaze which swept
the Sullivan Packing Cos. stock sheds,
Sunday evening, doing damage eati
mated at about $25,000.
Three alarms were sent in before
the fire department was able to cope
with the flames, which threatened the
main plant of the Sullivan company,
and also endangered Parker, Webb &
<’o.'r packing house, and the Edison
Illuminating Co.'s branch plant.
The bleating, squealing and bellow
ing of the dying animals, as they scur
ried blindly about In the flames, could
bo heard for blocks, and employes of
the stock yardH, and others, made
frantic efforts to rescue the impris
oned animals, chopping down fences
and driving scores of them Into an
open areaway. where they were cor
ralled, and escaped death.
About 600 sheep, nearly 400 hogs,
and about 25 cows were destroyed.
A row of houses to the west of the
blazing stock sheds, was quickly
emptied of all occupants, many ot
whom are employed in the stock
yards.
The fire Is believed to have started
in an oil house, as it was burning
fiercely at that point when discovered,
and a high wind fanned the flames
and sent them leaping toward the im
prisoned cattle.
