Church Razed by 4-Alarm Fire

Issue 11 and Volume 89.

Church Razed by 4-Alarm Fire Four alarms were sounded for a church fire which destroyed the Calvary M. E. Church at Minneapolis, Minn. Flames were discovered by the sexton in the rear of the church and shortly afterwards he had just time to leap to safety. After the fourth-alarm, radio stations broadcast an appeal for all off-platoon firemen to report for duty. The fire fighting was in charge of Deputy Chief Ack Foster, aided by two Battalion Chiefs. The fire broke out before a wedding that was to have been held. The nuptials were held at the specified hour but in the home of the bride’s parents.
