Berore any aid coo id be extended the fire had communicated to a aamoer of adioiuinjf sheds, barns and dwellings. and was rapidly carried north and east, despite the Sorts of the firemen. The fire seemed to leap over the engines, and commenced far beyond thcui.and, working to the east and west, either surrounded the apparatus or compelled it to move away, la less than ten minnies the lire embraced the area between Jefferson and Clinton fur two blocks north, and rapidly pawbed eastward to .1 ruef . When the fire first engulphed the two blocks, and the efforts of the undaunted engineers became palpably abortive to quench a single building,, an effort was made to bead it off from the north, but so great waa the area that it already covered at lUcw o'clock, and so rspklly did It niaren forward, that by the tiase the engines were at wurk the names weie ahead of them, and again they moved on north.
