Issue 16 and Volume 64.

Dye House Fire at Cleveland Fire in the dye house of Collings, Taylor & Company’s woolen mills, Cleveland, O., destroyed $20,000 worth of wool and ruined a supply of chemicals and dyeing machinery. It was caused by sparks from an electric motor falling into a pile of wool. Dense smoke from the burning wool made the work of the firemen under Chief George A. Wallace, difficult, but they succeeded in preventing the flames from spreading to the main buildings of the plant and stopped the fire in about an hour from the time of their arrival.
