men, quickly replaced the Buildings
In thirty-one days. Two mtn, Clar
ence Dickey. 1117 Grape street, and
Mervln Sherley. R. F. D. 4, Harris
burg, were badly burned nd had
to be taken to the Harrlsbfrg hos
pital for treatment.
The next disastrous conflagration
was at the City garage, wklch ex
tends along River street, opposite
the Public Library, from Walnut to
Strawberry street, early In the morn
ing of March 25. Seventy-five thou
sand dollars damage was caused.
C. K. Wolfe is proprietor of the gar
age, and his loss was heavy. Fif
teen new Bulck machines, owned by-
George B. Zech, the local Bulck
dealer, were destroyed besides sixty
other machines stored in the build
ing. The oiflce of the Remington
Typewriter Company, In tho first
floor, also sustained heavy damage.
Paul Guyer, a fireman, belonging to
the Royal Fire Company, was in
jured .while fighting the flames. The
building belonged to the Valley-
Traction Company and is rebuilt.
More tfian $3,500 was lost In a
blaze which started in an oil stor
age tank, m which is stored the oil
feeding thff open hearths, at the
Central Iron ftnd Steel Company. A
spark from a passing locomotive fell
into a shallow reservoir under the
tank, igniting the oil that had drip
ped there, and the heat caused the
35,000 gallons of oil in the tank to
flame with a sudden blast, which
brought hundreds to the scene.
Brakcman Is Killed
When a draft of two freight cars,
about 1:30 o'clock in the morning
of August 3, were switched into
three oil cars on the SK hump in
the Maclay street yards of the Penn
sylvania railroad, the plugs from the
oil cars were knocked loose, and the i
naphtha which spurted out was ig- j
nited from the lantern carried by-
Albert Burkholder, 270 Peffer street, j
the brakeman, who was riding the;
draft of freight cars. The flames
spread to other freight cars stand
ing by, and the loss was consider
able. Burkholder's clothes were
saturated with the blazing naphtha
and he died a few days later in the
Harrisburg Hospital.
The next person who fell a vic
tim to fire in Harrisburg during 1918
lost her life in tho fire wjiich broke
out in the rear of the cellar of Hor
ace M. Witman's home at 2101
North Second street September 10,
spread up the back stairs and de
stroyed the rear of the house. Mrs. !
Laura Loekhart, the maid, who was
sleeping in the tear room on the !
the third floor, was smothered to I
death as she wakened from her j
sleep. The remaining four occu- j
pants of the house, Mr. W.itman and
his three children, were saved only j
through the heroic efforts of Leo, j
Ralph and Frank Harris, who were !
staying with their mother next door, j
and who brought a ladder in the i
nick of time and rescued the im
periled family from their precarious
predicament. Thirty-five hundred
dollars was the property loss.
Oil Reservoir Blazes
Tlie Harrisburg Pipe and Pipe :
Bending Company was the scene of j
another expensive fire September 15, I
when the oil in a reservoir was ig- I
nited, and 40,000 gallons of quench- |
Ing oil, valued at $lO,OOO, went up;
In flames. The fire was started when
workmen giving hot steel the j
quenching oir treatment to cool and j
draw it, fed the steel too fast.
The last fire of considerable pro
portions occurred at the confection
cry and tobacoo warehouse of Smith
and Keffer, at 411 South Cameron
street, December 21. where a fire of
inexplicable origin swept the rear of
the first floor and caused $B,OOO dam
age to the stock and building. A sec
ond fire was caused three days later,
when a fuse blew out in the eleva
tor mechanism, but little damage re- r
i suited.
With the exception of the small
i Keffer blaze, the last three months
j have been featured by an epidemic
of false alarms and Insignificant
| blazes which caused little damage, *
j but kept the fire companies busy.
