Ail outside lights must be extin- Pire, resulting from a blow torch which was used to thaw out frozen water pipes in the basement of the home of Mrs. Rose Still wagon, on East Payette street last night, caused about _ ?2,000 damage to the house, burning out the attic and the second floor. De- ' lays ia getting water on the house, on account of froien water plugs, gave the fire a btart on the firemen and it was a hard fight to down the stubborn blaie. The flra started ibout T.30 o'clock and quickly spread. It seemed to be under control severs! times, but would break, out afresh and the-firemen were on the job until 11 o'clock. The department was called back to the house aibout an hour and half later when the blaze broke out a second time and worked with it until 3 o'clock. The house is covered with $3,500 insurance and as much rrC the furn turo was saved,'it is expected thai this will cover the damage. The rn. and bedrooms are a wreck hut the fire did not reach the lower floor. The blaze got its start m the furnace cellar. "Water pipes had become frozen there and Alphonso Sulln" gon, a son of Mrs,.

Tho SUilwagoBs did not know the fire alarm box, was in working order and the call was made by telephone from tho burning house.
