GOOD WORK BY THE NEWCOMB DELUGE WATER TOWER.
At a big fire in Holyoke, Mass., on July 31, the Newcomb Deluge water tower, attached to the aerial truck, did great service, the following being a descrip tion of its work, taken from the columns of the Holyoke Daily Transcript of August 1.
The aerial truck was stationed directly in front of the building, and for three hours a perfect deluge of water was thrown into the building from the Newcomb water tower nozzle which was supplied by engines 1 and 4. The tower fully demonstrated its great value and usefulness.
This tower is being installed in different cities by the Combination Ladder company, of Providence, R. I.
