An awfully disastrous fire occurred Here this morning in the building of the Oil Cabinet company in St. Urbain Street. Ten persons were killed and Many More were seriously injured. The building was five stories High of Wood and Flim Sily constructed. At five of clock the fire was discovered and an alarm quickly brought the firemen to the place. The flames at first were confined to the upper Story of the building being checked by the flow of water from thirteen nozzles but soon they broke Forth again from the windows. The firemen were working in various parts of the building As Well As outside. The fire descended to the lower stories with extraordinary rapidity. Shortly before six of clock the men in the second Story were called from their Post and no sooner had they descended from the windows than the flames belched Forth spitefully As if to overtake them. Reckless in their endeavours they raised a ladder and three of them ascended with Hose. The water that they poured into the lower stories seemed for the time to obtain the Mastery but suddenly the wind changed and the flames enveloped the whole Street. The wind instantly veered again and the firemen who had ascended were found at the foot of the ladder terribly burned. The heat in St. Urbain Street was so terrible that the Shingle roofs doors and window frames ignited but they were prevented getting ablaze by the firemen who had their wits about them. They set about protecting a lumber Yard that has its Entrance in Craig Street. It was closely watched and it May be said to have almost miraculously escaped likewise Charbonneau a sawmills which adjoined the blazing pile. At about six of clock the wind assisted the flames More effectually than before. It raised Clouds of red hot splinters and deposited them on the roofs of the adjacent dwellings in Vitro Street. The occupants of the rickety built tenements became alarmed and moved their goods in a remarkably Short time. The heat from the works set fire to the dwellings adjacent but a continuous pouring of water soon put that out. The fire in the upper Flat did not Abate in fury however and the basement became ablaze and the roof which fell in by sections increased the fuel that fed the flames. After the whole of the roof had fallen the upper portion of the Walls bulged outward and it was apparent to All the spectators that the Walls were sure to fall and that nothing could save the buildings adjacent common wooden shanties or the firemen close by.
