New Home Destroyed by Fire
The picture herewith was taken recently at the destruction of a home in Waterford, Conn., just outside of New London.
Firemen arrived to find a small portion of one room in flames, but when booster tanks were emptied the dames spread beyond control despite the efforts of members of three companies. Their efforts to prevent the spread of the flames to nearby houses were successful, but the home involved was a total loss. The house had just recently been completed and no insurance was carried on either the house or its contents.
