Lumber Fire at Duluth

Lumber Fire at Duluth

A fire that caused a loss of $60,200 occurred in the plant of the Virginia and Rainey Lake Lumber Company of Duluth, Minn., on June 13. It was discovered at 1.20 a. m., but the alarm was not received until 1.30 as the location of the structure was in the west end Bay front, and when the fire department arrived it was faced with a hot blaze enveloping the whole west side of the building. Three American-La France triple combination engines and a White truck were employed and soon three effective streams were thrown, but it was four hours before the fire was stopped. Three thousand feet of cotton rubber lined hose were used as there were no hydrants in the neighborhood available.
