It le spreading rapidly. The fire la In
the Hogg-Swayne tract, where the der- !
ricks are the thickest and the chances
for the fire to do th>· most damage I
This conflagration le likely to be one '
of the greatest in the field.
At 1 o'clock this morning It was re
ported that twelve Jives are known to |
have been lost, with a likelihood of,
twenty-five more being added to tht,
lost. Already forty derricks are smol
dering on the ground and sixty others
are burning.
There are fifteen acres In the present (
area of flames and the speculative val-1
ue Is estimated at $3.000,000 with an
actual loss of 1200.000. It Is thought
the balance of the field can be protect- j

but there may have been some loss.

burning, but was taken out of reach,
while three others are badly singed
The Bre originated at what is known

of the Kansas City Oil and Gas com
pany. It was caused by a watchman,
who has been in the habit of putting
out his lantern and taking a nap Kb
the light went out the gas ignited and
the trouble started. It has covered
about half of the east end of block 3*
on Splndletop avenue, being the ex
