Brooklyn Brewery Walls j
Crash to Ground, Burying
Two Under Beams.
Many Families Are Driven to
Street Before Flames Burst
Out on Roof.
Firemen John Bendy and William
Walsh of Truck Company 146 were
burled beneath a pile of burning wreck
age late last night when the roof of
the old Congress Brewery at 159 to 169
Meserole street, Brooklyn, fell In dur
ing a four alarm lire that destroyed
the structure and damaged the top
floor of a large tenement house In 210
Seholes street, driving twenty-nine
families into the streets.
The work of digging: Walsh out from
under the ruins proceeded for some time
by the light of the burning building.
which housed cooperage works and an
automobile storage house and a mass of
Inflammable material that made the fire 1
one of the most spectacular Brooklyn
has seen In a long time. But finally
the big building was entirely gone and
the fire that had threatened to destroy
the Scholea strict tenement was under
control. And v.hen there was not suffi
cient light for the firemen to carry on
their work of removing the layers of I
planks and timbers and beams that rov- )
ercdr Walsh's body the searchlights of I
the engines and water towers were put
to work.
The Are, with Its great columns of
black smoke and the glare that leaped
hundreds of feet Into the air. caused
tremendous excitement in the Williams
burg and Greenpoint districts of Brook
lyn, and was seen In all parts of the
borough. Several thousand persons vis
ited the scene while the firemen were
?corking, and they crowded so close to i
the apparatus that police reserves had
to be summoned to drive them back.
The tire started originally in the plant
of the Williamsburg Cooperage Works,
which occupied that part of the old
brewery building running from 163 to
lo9 -Meaerolc street, and spread quickly
Into the automobile storage house of
ohn Waliack, in 169 and 161 Meaerolc
Only a short time after the fire
started the Klre Department and the ?
police ordered the tenants of 210 Schofes ,
street, directly in the rear of the brewery
building, to leave their homes. They fled
In their night clothing down fire escapes
and stairways, and the last of them had
hardly left before the top floor burst
Into flames. The firemen had been
vatching for this, however, and were
able to extinguish the flames quickly.
Many of the tenants, however, were cut
and burned in their efforts to get out
quickly, and a few of those who lingered
on the top floor in the hope of saving
their belongings were slightly burned. :
They were attended by surgeons from
the St. Catharine's, Greenpolnt arid
Williamsburg hospitals, and by drug
clerks in the neighborhood.
Bendy and Waisli rrere In a detail
of six firemen who carried their lines
f hose close to the walls of the burning
ullding and threw the water upward
Imost perpendicularly. Other firemen
?nw the roof buckling and cracking, and
they shouted an alarm. Four of the
men leaped backward to safety, but
Bendy and Walsh were caught They
?* ent down underneath the pile of wreck
age that plunged downward fri>m the
walls and roofs. About 11 o'clock other
Iremen dragged Fireman Bendy from
the wreckage, but he was unconscioua
his clothing had been burned and ripped
almost from his body, and he had been
?"0 badly hurt that he was hurried at
once to St. Catherine's Hospital, where
physicians said he had a possible frac
ture of the skull, fracture of both legs
and probably internal Injuries. He Is
.not axpccted to recover.
Fireman Walsh, however, was pinned
underneath the wreckage for more than
an hour and was not rescued until after
midnight. The danger of dropping huge
beams and timbers down upon him was
nv great that the firemen of the rescue
?quad and others detailed from truck
and engine companies to help In the
work literally had to remove the wreck
age piece hy piece and layer by layer.
Each small bft of timber had to be
lifted separately from the great pile of
smoldering and burning wreckage.
But during all the time that Walsh
vas pinned underneath the pile he re
mained conscious and directed the work
of his rescuers, telling them at what
points they could hurry with their r/ork
and at what points they had best go
slowly because of the danger of crushing
"I don't think j am hurt much," Walsh
told his comrade*, as one of them
droppe.! to his knees and shoute<i to
him. "But you had better be careful.
There are a lot of very heavy timbers
just above my head, and if they are
dislodged I am done for."
It wa? a long hour that Walsh re
mained underneath the wrecknge, and
it was a very painful hour for him. be
muse one of his legs had been Injured
and he was suffering terribly from In
ternal Injuries But through all of the
torture of the timbers pressing against
hl? body and the suffocating smoke that
rolled under the wreckage from the
waternoaked and ?mouldering beams
Walsh retained his oourage At one
time during the work, after the
had progressed to the point where the
Fleam of Walsh's helmet was visible In
the rays of the lights, a physician asked
him if he wanted a drink.
"I never took a drink In my life," he
?aid. "This la no time to begin ru
