Sault Ste. Marie Has Stubborn Fire
For six hours firemen in Sault Ste. Marie, Canada, worked in the intense cold to extinguish a fire that is believed to have started among oily materials and leather in a harness shop, due to spontaneous combustion. Every available fireman and all apparatus were called to fight this blaze.
Flames were first noted in the southeast corner of the building above the harness room. Dense clouds of smoke hampered the men in their work.
Chief W. Phillips believes that the fire caused $60,000 damage to building and contents.
