STRENUOUS FIRE VOLUNTEERS IN BROOKLYN.

STRENUOUS FIRE VOLUNTEERS IN BROOKLYN.

Forming a volunteer brigade and using the firefighting equipment in the Garfield building, an eight-story structure in Court and Remsen streets, business men and clerks the other day damaged the building by water to the extent of about $200, after a blaze in one of the offices had been extinguished with a loss of one-twentieth part of that sum. As the volunteers worked the hose, in spite of the protests of the superintendent of the building, some excited person sent in a fire alarm and three engines, as many tenders, two hook and ladder trucks, three chiefs and the crew’ of a salvage corps responded long after the fire was out As the smoke was blown into the hallway an occupant of the building raised a cry of fire and the volunteers took possession of the fire hose and flooded the floor.
