Incendiary Fires in Princeton
Princeton, N. J., was visited on June 17 and 18 with a series of incendiary fires comparatively small in themselves, but scattered in distant parts of the city and which kept the firemen busy from 1:30 in the morning until well on into the day. The first blaze was in a barn belonging to a contractor and this structure was destroyed. The neighbors managed to get the horses out of danger. Shortly after this, five other alarms came in from different parts of the city, this continued until daylight. It is said that there was evidence of incendiarism as there was an unmistakable odor of gasoline and kerosene at the fire.
