Two Jacksonville Buildings Burn

Issue 3 and Volume 96.

Two Jacksonville Buildings Burn The worst fire since the Clyde Steamship Line Docks burned in 1941 destroyed two large waterfront warehouses in Jacksonville, Fla., and threatened the entire area before it was brought under control after three hours by every available fire fighting unit. One Coast Guardsman received a broken leg when a flame-weakened ramp collapsed, a soldier sustained head and shoulder injuries when a piece of roofing fell on him, and several firemen had minor hurts. Two Atlantic Coast Line warehouses, one housing the Jacksonville Crate Company, the other used by the Valvoline Oil Company as a storage depot were destroyed.
