A SMALL BLAZE.
Christian's Restaurant Narrow-
Timely Discovery Saves Ugly Fire
At about eleven o'clock Tuesday night an alarm of fire was turned in from
Christian's restaurant and the prompt response and efficient work of the fire department
prevented what might have been a disastrous conflagration.
The fire was caused by some wood catching fire that had been placed in the baker's oven to dry out and later put on the floor of the kitchen.
The bakery and restaurant was considerably damaged and it was very fortunate that the city marshal discovered the blaze at the time he did.
