CAMBRIDGE PAPER MILL BURNED

CAMBRIDGE PAPER MILL BURNED

Ruins of the Uncompleted Paper Supply Building of Morey & Co. at Cambridge, Mass.

The fire which swept through the new fivestory building of Morey & Company, paper supplies, on Commercial avenue, Cambridge, Mass., recently caused a damage of over $30,000, and was a very spectacular blaze. It is believed tbe fire started in the rear of the ground floor where ome tar was being burned. As the interior of the structure was uncompleted there was nothing to check the flames which spread rapidly and caused 150 workmen employed in the upper stories to flee hurriedly to the street. A Boston fircboat and an engine from Somerville worked at the fire in addition to five steam engines of the Cambridge department.
