 FIRE AT ST. ANNES

This afternoon an alarm was given at St, Annes that one the large residences on North Drive [Clifton Drive North] was on fire. The brigade turned out with the hose cart, and found the back wing of Mr. Whittaker’s house in flames.

After an hour’s work the fire was extinguished, but most of the roof at the back was destroyed, the damage being estimated at about ¬£lOO. The fire supposed to have originated through the kitchen flue overheating the felt and boarding under the slates.

It somewhat remarkable that the new steam fire engine only arrived St. Annes on Saturday.
