W/JIEHOUSE FIRE AT LAV/NDALE ‘
Tuesday afternoon, Oct, 5th, we had a "heckuva" lot of excitement in the vill
age - A huge fire broke out in our nev/est warehouse, (The large one, built last year)
The fire was believed to have started from a spark from an electric motor. The fire
swept through one section of the warehouse (you know its built in sections, separated
by thick v/alls) and damaged about 1000 bales of cotton. The loss was estimated at
several thousands of dollars but was covered by insurance. The Lawndale volunteer
firemen did an excellent job, and soon had the blaze under' control.
Boys, you can imagine the excitcment this fire caused, cro;7t’s quickly gathered
to watch - 1/i/hat is there about a fire anyviay, that always draws a crowd,
V/e'U tell you about a fev7 side-lights at the fire, Alden Eaker got his index
finger broken, by a hose connection - Dr, Grigg and "Stick" Elliott got knocked down
by the spray from a hose, .but vj^re not hurt, other than being rolled over n'over,
several times - Mr, John Schenck, Sr, had his "Stetson" knocked off ?jid his coat dren
ched,- Pearle Sweezy, who had been complaining mightily of rheumatism in her ri^t
am, crxae up the road at a double clip, frantically swinging both arms, all pain for
gotten, someone remarked that she was running so fast, that they saw the bottoms of
her feet sc often, that they thought she was lying down - Ruth Williams, busy in the
mill, upon being told the fire v;as practically at her door, excitedly turned to some
one near her, and handing them a valueless little wire hook, said, "Please hold this
for me til I get back", and she was gone like the wind, too.
The carpenters are hard at work, re-building the burned portion, and before many
more days, it will be all finished, good-as-now, end v/e shall only have the memory of
one more big fire,
