DAMAGED BY FIRE
It Was a Two-Story Double Frame
Structure at 321 and 323
Fire wus discoveied In the lower side
of the double frame.' structute situated
ut 321 and 323 Madison uvenue, and
occupied by Louis Francois and Hoscoo
Conklln, at C.4:; last evening, and an
alarm sent In from Box 27, ut the cor
ner of Mulberry street and Jfudlson
avenue. The roof and third story of
the structure. weie completely gutted,
and the test of the bulldlnc and Its
contents badly damaged by water. The
loss Is estimated at about II, BOO. pattly
covered by Insurance.
Thu oilgln of the Hie Is unknown,
but It Is thought that an overheated
flue was the cause. Chief of Fire De
partment Zlzlctnun snys he smellod
gas, nnd believes that this became
Ignited in some manner.
The fire originated lu the lower tight
band corner of the attic on the side
occupied hy Francois, and ate Its way
forward and to the left upon the side
occupied by Itoscoe Conklln. Owing to
the slate roof the firemen experienced
much difficulty In fighting the blaze.
By running ladders and lines of hose
up the sides of the adjoining houses.
In addition to the streams brought In
fiom the front and rear of the build
ing, the llro was subdued, but not until
the household furnishings on both
sides which weio no! amoved weie
destroyed hy water.
Conklln fixes his loss at $1,000. with
?J00 Insuiunce. FrnneoK loss Is as
great, with Jt.OOO Insurance. F. M.
Aylsworth Is the owner or the piop
crty, und his loss will range somo
where between $1,"00 and $2,000. Both
Conklln and Francois keep nine or ten
boarders each and their loss of per
sonal effects, not covered by Insurance,
will amount to several hundred mora.
Both families were seated at tho
supper table, and received their llrst
Intimation of the lire by some one ring
ing the door-bell. T. L. Hazlett was
standing In front of his residence on
Madison avenue, when ho saw the
smoke nnd turned In the alarm.
