FIRE AT WHITE MILLS Heroic Work of Firemen Savo Other Buildings From Burning nt Early Firo Monday Morning. A vacant house belonging to the Dorfllnger's, White Mills, was burned about 1 o'clock Monday morning. The loss is complete there being no Insurance carried upon the dwelling. The White Mills boys quickly an swered the flro alarm and within a few minutes afterwards had streams of water upon tho burning building. By heroic work upon their part they succeeded in not only saving tho big Dorfilnger establishment from de struction, but also protected several adjacent houses from being burned. The wind was blowing In the direc tion of the factory but tho boys, by hard work, succeeded in subduing the flames. This is demonstrated by tho fact that only tho roof was burned off, the four sides of the building re maining lntnct. The kitchen, at the rear of tho house, was destroyed. The snow on the roofs of the houses adjacent to the fire, without a douht, was a good preventative against the flro. Large sparks were carried some distanco from tho fire, but no other flro was started by their dropping upon buildings. Thomas Smith was tho hero of the fire. Ho was head nozzleman on Engine No. 2 and evidently mis Judged the distance of tho lire. Ule burned his nose. The 'building had been vacated since last Thursday by Charles Smith, who moved to Indian Orchard. Mr. Smith said he left the house clean, and could not account for the firo. As no one occupied the dwell ing and Its taking Are at so early an hour in the morning leads tho people of Whlto Mills to believe that the fire was of an Incendiary origin. The building was erected about 42 years ago. Honesdalo Boy Promoted. Daniel R.
