Dominion Meat Market & Crow's Nest Cleaners: 0050.0724

FIRE DEPARTMENT ANSWERS TWO CALLS. – Small Blaze at Dominion Meat Market and Larger One at Crow’s Nest Cleaners.

            Last Thursday night about midnight the fire department was called out to extinguish a small blaze in the Dominion Meat Market caused by some grease catching fire.  It was an easy fire to cope with and the damage was light.

            Friday afternoon about three o’clock the department received another call, this time to the Crow’s Nest Cleaners establishment on Cranbrook street.  This was a gasoline fire and was quite a stubborn proposition to handle for a time.  The loss in this case was about $300 on the building and $175 on content.  Luckily there was not a large stock of clothes on hand, as shipments had been made that day to Fernie and Kimberley.  The building was insured but the contents were not covered.
