Salem Daily News, The (Newspaper) - December 15, 1890, Salem, Ohio THE SALEM DAILY NEWS. VOL. II, NO. SALEM. OHIO, MONDAY, DECEMBER 15. 1890. TWO CENTS. By the Ravages of Fire at PTOT- idence, K. 1. A Magnificent Business Block and Its Contents Completely De- stroyed. Occnpantu Bad to With Their Llvm, WbiU Two Wore Injured bj Falling PROVIDENCE, R. L, Dec. be- fore o'clock Saturday afternoon a rash boy employed by the J. B. Barnabj Clothing Company, corner of Westmin- ster and Dorrance streets, saw smoke issuing from the cellar. He investigated and came rushing: up the stairs, ex- claiming that the whole house was on fire. In a few minutes flames burst from the floor on the first story in every direction. Even the occupants of the first floor had to hurry in order to es- cape with lives, so quickly did the fire spread. Three alarms were sounded in quick succession and the flames mounted upward with such rapidity that the occupants of the second and third floors had barely time to reach the fire escapes. Women clerks in the cloak department and customers stood at the windows paralyzed with fright, but they were encouraged and hurried out by the firemen. The fire was so fierce that a fourth alarm was sounded, as it was rapidly communicating with adjoining buildings. The Barnaby company employed 100 persons in the building, some of them women in the cloak department on the second floor and the cutting rooms on the fourth floor. Alderman Henry B. Winship, the head of the -firm, was in the private office and endeavored to pre- vent a panic while assisting clerks and customers to make their exit in the quickest manner possible. A fire es- cape had been put on the Middle street side of tha building a weok ago, and but for this device nfany lives would have be'en sacrificed. In thirty minutes after the 'discovery of the blaze, the entire fire force of the city- was fighting the flames and offers of aid from Pawtucket and Johnston had been accepted. On the west of the Dorrance .building was the smaller H. T. -Root building with freestone front, and its roof-was twenty feet lower than the Dorrance building. This wall projecting above the Root building was the first to fall and it crashed in the roof of the Root building, wrecking the workshop of the Plymouth Rock Pants Company, in the upper story. The roof of the Dorrance building fell in soon a'fter and as floor after floor gave way it was seen that the long east wall, fronting on Dorrance street, was likely to fall. One hook and ladder truck was taken out of danger and down Westmin- ster street just in time. Truck No. 2, however, could not bo taken out and the wall fell into the street with a thunder- ous crash, smashing the truck into inch bits. Orrin -Mowrey, a member of truck No. a, and an unknown man were struck by the falling wall. Mowzey.'s right leg was broken and he was injured in the head and chest The unknown maabad a scalp wound. Soon after four o'clock the fire was under' control and it was then evident that it would be confined to the Dor- ranee building. The losses and insur- ance are: Building, loss insur- ance J. B. Barnaby Co., loss insurance i Taylor, loss insurance Clarke, loss insurance S900.. The H. T. Root building was damaged to the extent of by the crushing of the roof and by water; insured.
