A stubborn three-hour blaze which broke out about noon gave Eastview firemen considerable trouble before they brought it under control. No one was hurt but damage will run close to $100,000. The basement of the big store, on the Montreal Road at Olm-stead Avenue, was heavily damaged and sections of the main floor burned through, tumbling merchandise and equipment into the cellar. Store To Close Store officials say that the branch will have to be co: ed f of repairs Immediately and may have to be rebuilt. They said that they could not give an exact estimate of damage but reported that thousands of dollars worth of stock was destroyed. One woman, Mrs. Ruth Leger, head cashier, had a narrow escape when smoke filled her office and the lights went out She groped her way to safety, but was slightly overcome and sickened by fumes. She did not require medical treatment, All other store employes escaped with little trouble but they said thai tne fire spread at tremendous speed. The alarm was given by Miss Florence Schultz, a clerk, who called to a passerby when smoke and heat drove her from the elepnone as she tried to call the Eastview fire department Th fire hall is two blocks' from the nig store Cause of the blaze is not known but it broke out in a storage room at the front of the basemen. It is thought to have fed un cartons stored there. Eastview firemen under acting Chirf Mike Lanoue had a stiff battle before they could bring the blazt under control. It was several hour before they coulc enter tne basement and bring their hce lines to bear on the heart of the blaze. They were also seriously ham pered by the lack of smoke masks and the fact that only two hy drants could be reached by the available hose lines. At the height of the fire four lines were in operation. Mayoi Gordie La-vergne said that water pressure dropped slightly but he had ordered crews to do everything within their power to hold pressure up. He termed the fire "un der control" after about two hours. Most of the damage was In the Montreal Road end of the store the front where a hole was burned through a large section of the floor. Cash registers, counters, and display cases fell through to the basement Money in the store's safe was taken out by police about 2.30 p.m. White Cane Club Highlights of the regular meeting of Ottawa White Cane Club of the Blind, Monday, was the approval of recommendations for the forthcoming Ontario Canadian Council of the Blind Convention. 3 Yim with ADD NfW BIAUJY, COASfOffT AND VAWt TO YOUR H0M WITH Inside and Out I mm Start inside with the easiesMo-use paint for Walls, Ceilings and Woodwork . . .
