Scope and content

"When the fire alarm sounded at 4.30 o'clock on Monday afternoon, the billowing smoke at the top of the hill in town confused, giving the impression that the fire was closer and presenting rather an alarming picture. However, when the fire-fighting equipment went on to the brow of the hill, the fire was located on the Stoddart property and it was the barn.
The older timber provided material for a real conflagration and the fire, having gotten away to a good start, was out of hand before the firemen arrived on the scene. All they could do was stand by to protect neighbouring properties.
Later Monday night, with a breeze blowing, the brigade returned when sparks menaced the neighbourhood.
The cause of the fire is unknown."
