St. Paul Has $100,000 Fire

Fire which developed in a hardware building, a three-story stone structure in St. Paul, Minn., caused a multi-alarm fire which resulted in a damage of $100,000. Five alarms brought out two aerial ladders, one service truck, two rescue squads and eleven engine companies under command of Chief William Suderith.

All men on the off shift reported back for duty and placed all reserve apparatus in service. Some men worked at the fire as extra companies. Three firemen were injured, but not seriously. The last company at the fire, reported hack to its station after 20 hours’ service.

This is the best five-alarm fire that the city has had since 1927.
