Scare at Windsor Castle

Issue 6 and Volume 112.

Scare at Windsor Castle Smoke belching from a window of Windsor Castle, in Windsor, England, where Queen Elizabeth was spending Easter, brought the fire brigade on the double. There was no fire, however, the smoke emanating from a chimney downdraft. In the last five years fire losses in the United States, when measured in dollars, increased 21 per cent—from $870,984,000 in 1954 to $1,056,266,000 in 1958. During that period close to 300,000 homes were struck by fire every year.
