The fire began in a shingle mill and fkc-tory near the river front, just- outsidoi the northern boundary of the city libi-its. A strong wind from the northeabt, perhaps a twenty-mile breeze,., was blowing,'and the flamessoon'commn^i-; cated to the ^ootton^warehouses which, line the river front from Beauiegalrd street, the northern :;boundary; southward six blocks and from the river front westward to Magnolia streJet, three blocks. .From; the shingle mill{ to �Goodman's warehouse on the blcjck bounded by Front, Beauregard; Water and Lipscomb streetsr the distanc^ js; abont six' hundred yards, and alm6Bt as soon as smoke was seen issuing from the roof, the cotton blazed up. |ln Ooodman's there was stored abont nine, hundred bales of cotton afld the sparks from this cottoa, carried by the wind, next "cominnnicated the flames to Brown's warehouse-on: Lipscomb and' ' Water and running back to Magnolia' street to the southwest > to the .Mobile Oil mills, which was next south on the east side of Front street, and to the: whdrf front to the Mobile and Birminig- � ham Railroad; company; which fronted' on the water from Baauregard to Lips-' comb streets. The inflammable' character of the material wliich fed the flames and the quarter gate of wind that was blowing Caused the Fire to Spread with lightning-like rapidity, and'before 2 o'clock in the'afternoon it looked, as if itheflre.would spread from end to end of the water'front of the city.
