Eight-Year Record

Issue 2 and Volume 104.

Eight-Year Record The 24-hour period pending midnight January 17 was the first in at least eight years in which no damage was reported from any fire within the city limits of St. Louis, according to Fire Chief Walter H. Kamman. Actually, the period may have been longer, the chief believes, because records have only been kept since the creation of the Fire Prevention Bureau eight years ago. Twelve fire calls were sounded in the period for apparatus but of these, four were false alarms, two were set off accidently and six others were for minor incidents.
