-of James Lynott.
The home of Mrs. Honora Coggins, at
2523 Cedar avenue, was burned to the
ground last evening. The house was
not insured and the loss will amount
to about tSOO. Only a part of her fur
niture was saved, so quickly did the
flames eat up the building.
.The family can not account for the
origin of the fire. It started near the
roof and they think that the chimney
must, have been defective and In that
way the fire was communicated to the
woodwork. The house was a two-story
frame structure and had been built
only a few years.
The William Council and Neptune
companies answered the alarm, but
when they arrived the house was
burned down and there was no danger
to adjoining properties. The fire em
phasized the need of an alarm station
