Norfolk Summer Resort has a Narrow Escape.

Issue 25 and Volume 46.

Norfolk Summer Resort has a Narrow Escape. Six large frame buildings, including four summer hotels and several smaller structures, were involved in a fire on December 2 that was only prevented by strenuous work on the part of the volunteer firefighting force from wiping out Ocean View, the Coney Island of Norfolk, Va. Although the flames were checked before they reached the principal part of the resort, the loss will amount to $50,000, partly covered by insurance.
