Louisville Has Three-Alarm Fire
Sparks from a machine in the Louisville Bedding Company plant in Louisville, Ky., started a fire recently that required a three-alarm response before it was under control. Nine men were injured in fighting this fire, which was in a congested value district.
The first floor was completely enveloped by flames when the first company arrived. The apparatus that responded included one steamer, three Ahrens-Fox and seven Seagrave pumpers varying in size from 750-to 1400-gallons. The building had sprinkler protection, but due to some repairs on the system, the controlling valve was closed.
