On Wednesday morning at about 11 a.m., the people of Flagstaff were startled by the blowing of the mill whistle, which at that time meant an alarm of some kind. Smoke was soon to be seen issuing from Old Town and in a few minutes the flames burst out, making a lively blaze.
A large number of people gathered on the spot, but all that could be done was to save as much of the contents of the buildings as possible. The buildings destroyed were an ice house, a dwelling house belonging to J. H. Prime, a small house belonging to Frank Beal, Mr. McLaughlin’s residence and a house belonging to G. A. Woods. All old and of little value. The fire is thought to have been started by sparks from a heavily laden A. & P. engine laboring up the steep grade nearby.Rifampicin Deutschland Free child clinics checked for
