Huntington Chief Hurt A $25,000 blaze at Huntington, W. Va., caused possibly fatal injuries to Assistant Fire Chief Doogh and serious hurt to two other men, one the policeman who discovered the fire, burning twenty-eight horses alive and destroying three automobiles. The fire was in the plant of the McCoach Ice and Storage Company. It was of unknown origin and caused a total loss. When discovered the flames had made great headway, and while the fire company was operating upon it one of the walls of the two-story building collapsed and fell into the street. The injured men were caught under the falling brick and were rescued only after very hard work on the part of the firemen. They were hurried to the hospital.
