STOCK DAMAGE IS ALSO HEAVY Fire of undetermined origin, -which for a. time threatened the business section of Vanderbilt early this morning virtually destroyed a two-siorv brick building, one room of which was occupied by the Newmyer Cramer clothing store. The loss was estimated at approximately $10,00^, Volunteer firemen from four companies battled the stubborn blaze for three houra. Three streams of yat- er were played on it. A drizEllng rain aided the several score of volunteers. The building, owned by Mrs. Charles Roberts of Wheeling:, W. Va., formerly Mrs. Mary Popovicli of\Vai- derbilt, was badly gutted. Practically everything: will hare to be rebuilt except tho walls in event the placo is put into condition again, it was said. The flooring, walls and ceiling will have to be replaced. It was estimated that the loss to the structure, costing about ?30,OOQ, will aggregate $25,000. There is no insurance, It was reported. The Newmyer Cramer dothtflg store, the only tenant in the build- lug, lost approximately $15,000 wortn of merchandise and fixtures in the blaze. Burt Newmyer, proprietor cf the establishment, said to have been one of the best outfitted in its stock in the Tri-Town community, declared that his total loss would be between £15,000 and $16,000. About $9,500 insurance was carried, it was said. The blaae was detected at 3:20 o'clock by Charles Patterson who saw flames ID the rear of the building while sitting in his home on Vanderbilt Hill, across the crock from the business district. He notified Jive home fire department which readily responded. Assistant Fire Chief Frank E. Reed today told The Courier that Ue did not believe the fire was started from the coal stove which was located in the rear of the storeroom, although it was burning. He said when, he answered the alarm he went into the structure and found the floor nine. He added that it was a little distance away from the stove, thus discrediting the report that the Maze was caused from an overheated Mote. i The fire was concentrated i-i the rear of the building and the 3remen experienced difficulty in settij.- at. the blaze. The flames ate their way from tho flrt,t floor to the second and then ,to the roof. With the blaze located in the extreme end of the structure, it was hard to throw a wa'or line on its as the volunteers were warned of the danger of the llocrs and ceiiinga caving in. At first chemical 'tanks were employed but the flatneB had gained much headway, The D. L v Volunteer Fire Department called for aid and two trucks from Soottdale one from Connftllsvillo and another' from Dawaon responded. With (he hosts of th?sc trucks attached,, it was possible to secure three streams of water wnich was pumped from a creek, about 10(J yards from the scene of the fire. Two of the pumpers were employed in providing pressure. There was a steady ralii, throughout tile early morning hours and this aided materially in preventing the fire from spreading- lo the adjoining buildings. On ^ t h e south side of the building is the First National Bank wbilo to the north Is the Johnson block which includes a moat market, a vacant storeroom, l u n c h counter, clothing store and theatre.
