Forest Fires in Beverly
“If the pool collectors have a corner on Boxes 32 and 45,” says a Beverly, Mass., newspaper, “their winnings will be large, for in less than 48 hours those two boxes were pulled no fewer than 10 times, and during that time, 127, 315 and 43 were also pulled, making 13 alarms in all up to 2 o’clock p. m. Monday, September 21. Hose 4 was in service almost continuously for two days and nights, fighting fires in the woods. Other companies were on duty many hours. On Sunday there were several extensive forest fires within the city limits and more than 150 acres have been burped over.
