SARATOGA, N. Y., FIRE DEPARTMENT.
Chief Engineer Shadwick of the Saratoga, N. Y., fire department, reports that during the year ending March 1, there were 43 fires, next to the largest number in any one year since the organization of the department, in which there are 23 men. The total time required in service at fires was 33 hours and 6 minutes. The fire-loss for the year will be approximately $50,000.
