The people of Raleigh are justly
proud of the city's fire department,
and it deserves the high opinion
they have f it. The department's
year begins March 1. During the
twelve months from March 1. 1891,
to March I, 1892, there were 38
fire alarms, of which two were
turned in on account of fires outside
the city limits. During April there
were two alarms and the loss was
only $2. In May there were
also two, and the loss was $1,351.
