Salvage Warehouse Ruined by Fire
A three-alarm fire in San Diego, Calif., destroyed a Salvation Army warehouse, a residence, and damaged three other homes and two sheds on July 20.
The warehouse at 18th Street, Commercial and Kearney Avenues, contained two new waste paper balers, an air compressor and donated articles of salvage ranging from furniture to baled waste paper and magazines.
The night caretaker at the warehouse was awakened shortly before midnight by an explosive sound. Passersby helped him drive eight Salvation Army trucks to safety. Army officials estimated damage to their warehouse at $50,000.
