Fire in Meserve’s New Building. At? 9 :46 last night fire broke out in the rear of the Meserve building on Main street. Some of the wooden partitions built close to the brick chimney caught fire from the intense heat of the flue. There were a dozen boys swimming in the Natatorium pool which is located immediately in front of the one where the fire broke out. They were the first to notice the smoke and they asked that au in vestigation be made. William Mes erve was present. He went into the back room and discovered the flames. The boys scrambled out of the wool when they heard of their proximity to danger. Some of them started to run out into the bitter cold night with nothing on but their bathing suits. One boy in the excitement stayed be hind long enough to wrap his collar around his neck and without putting his shirt on made a dive for the front door. The lads were held back and told to stay where it was warm and clothe themselves. They were soon quieted and behaved themselves ad mirably after that. Of course all this took place in less time than it takes to tell it. Mean while. Will Feltman one of the boys who hapnened to be dressed was told to send .in the alarm. He did so. The fire bovs made a very quick run. They had their wagon on the scene of the conflagration in the twinkling of an eye. it seemed. They were handi capped at first by not being able to see any fire from the front of the rtore on Main street. They stretched a line of hose from the corner of Fourth and Main, then from Fourth and Colorado, down the post office al sley to the rear of the Meserve build ing. The fire soon yielded to the stream that was turned uGon it. As the walls of the building were of brick, there was little chance of the fire spreading. Only the woodwork on the inside suffered to any extent. The damage done, amounting to aboat $275 is cov ered by insurance.
