Canning Plant Gutted by Fire
Fire originating from an unknown cause, destroyed the main section of the large canning plant owned and operated by the Canadian Canners, in Port Dalhousie, Ont.
Ten employees were working in the building and had to make their escape from the building from the basement as the fire cut off the exist from the stairways and the fire escapes. The plant was operated for the bottling of tomato juice.
When the Port Dalhousie Fire Department responded, they found the building a mass of flames. Assistance was sent from St. Catherines. Firemen used four lines on the blaze all night and most of the next day.
