THE HOUSE OF MBS OOOK AFIRE Two Bigr Fires and Several Little Ones Keep Up Fxoite- ment Locally. Fire destroyed the er tire factory of the former Beacon -Larnp Company, on lower Burnet street, around midnight on Monday. The plant of this company was brought here, fuur years ago from Boston and was Ihen known as the Beacon Lamp Company, makers of incandescent eltc.Iru: light globes. This company recent'y tailed and was sold out to Charles Bigelow, of New York. A week ago it became the Raritan Electrical Manufacturing Company) an incorporated concern with a capital stock of $150 V 000 and with H. G. Far Mr as the local representative. The streets were filled «M'h ,,,»r,. pie at 11.20 o'clock MODO' - . i^i-t when an alarm of iii.- v a3 sounded from box 27 at avenue and Burnet street. A few minutes before a half dozen people, including Thomas Collins and Harry Gorman,who were in the vicinity of the building, dis- oouered flames on the east side of the building where the laboratory of the firm was located. Even then the fire must have been burning a long time, as soon afterward the interior of the struotnre was seen to be a mass ot flames.. There were many other buildings near the factory and Second Assistant Chief Charles Bank, who was early on the scene, realizing their danger, soon sent in a second alarm, while a third and general alarm, although only the box number and not three threes was sounded, was sent in at 11.40 o'clock. Every engine company responded promptly. The wind blew from the south, sending the flames and sparks toward the canal, with the result that the fighters quickly accomplished the work ot putting out the fire. A wooden corn «rib less than 15 feet from the building was not even burnt d, although the entire two and a half story brick factory and ah its contents were lost. There were many explosions of chemicals in tho building during the fire. The firemen greatly distinguished themselves and prevented the fire from attacking the mule stables of P. M. Welsh, Conover's Ftables, the, machine shop of Thomas Lea, the foundry of Thomas Phinney and dwellings nearby. Collins and Gorman mentioned above saved 16 mules from the stables. One accident occurred. George Jaques while mounted on a ladder at the rear ot the building and fighting the fire at close quarters was forced to jump to save himself from a mass of falling bricks. He was badly bruised about the bead and face. Engine No. 0 was at Thomas Lea's machine shops uudergoiug repairs, and when that building WJB threatened the engine was removed to a safe place. There was considerable insurance carried on the building and its contents The building belonged to Thomas Lea, wno recently had furnished the power for the factory from his engines. The building was insured for $7,000 of which J. Bayard Kirkatriok carried $2,000, Michael O'Connor $2,000 and. (.hree New York poajinieB $1,000 each. The contents were insured for 164,000. J. Bayard Kirfepatrick had $33,000, Neilepn T. Parser $25,000, and Lyons .flrotheft 16,000. About 200 persons bad been employed in the building lecently, and as a result they have now no employment. A representative of the company said today that it was undecided whether they would rebuild On the old site. It was possible, he said, a new factory would be bailt across the river The origin of the fire has not bsen fully determined SOME MINOR FIEES.
