Clean Up in Columbus Approved by Fire Marshal Fleming of Ohio

Fire Marshal Alfred T. Fleming, of Ohio, in an address before the mayor’s general committee of the clean-up and paint-up campaign, at Columbus, Ohio, declared he could not too strongly emphasize his approval of the movement. “There is real patriotism behind this campaign,” said Mr. Fleming, who emphasized the importance of getting rid of every fire hazard. He urged the necessity of fire prevention with striking figures and illustrations. He branded every fire loss a drain on the nation’s resources and compared the burning of food supplies to the killing of men at the front. The clean-up plan in Columbus was commended highly by the fire marshal, who said that he would encourage similar campaigns all over the state. He volunteered his personal services in the work here and announced that he would furnish inspectors from his office to see that fire hazards were removed in business houses and homes.
