Hotel Guests Alerted Dense smoke billowed from the windows and soared upwards for several hundred feet. The smoke caused the management of the Fort Cumberland Hotel across the street to alert guests, but it was not nece.ssary to evacuate the hotel. At times the smoke was so thick Baltimore Street was shrouded in a thick blanket. Thousands of gallons of water were poured into the flaming structure and at times it seemed it was having little or no effect. Tongues of fire mushroomed from the cornice at the top of the building. Firemen fighting the flames from ladders at the second floor were showered with glass when windows were broken. Two high pressure hoses poured water into the third floor through window openings, and two other lines were used in. directing water into the second floor from the street. Ladder Proves Effective At one point the firemen were undecided as to the next course of action and one officer commented: 'Let it go through the roof and we'll be able to contain it In one building." The flames did break out through a skylight and the hook and ladder was maneuvered higher so as to play a stream of water on the flames there. Noise of the high pressure hoses and breaking glass and splintering Wood was terrific. Firemen had difficulty in making themselves heard. Assistant Chief Robert Long di- rested the fire fighters at the front of the building as Chief Virgil Parker consulted frequently with firemen at both the front and rear of the structure. Business At Standstill The Shinnamon Shoe Store next to Use burning- structure was doused by tons of water, and Maurice's Department Store in the flaming structure suffered heavily from water and smoke which enveloped the three floors. The flames were stopped on the west end of the Potomac Edison building by the Lazarus building which has a firewall. To the east the story was different, and it was there that firemen concentrated their efforts to contain the flnmrs Members of the Corriganville and Wiley Ford fire companies joined ir the fight against t.hp flames, Red Cross Helps The American Red Cross canteen service was on the scene, serving !It will convene at 10 a. m. wit luncheon followed by an afternoo: business session which will consis of a pane! board discussion followei by a membership workshop.
