Take Emergency Precautions LONDON, Jan. 19 (UP)—Fire of mysterious origin occurred during th» night at an electrical engineering factcry near the Waltham Abbey Royal Gunpowder Works. It was disclosed today, ns secret operatives of Ihe war office intelligence and Scotland Yard's crack criminal Investigators took emergency precautions throughout the country against a suspected sabotage plct. Thc electrical plant fire occurred at Enfleld, five miles from Waltham Abbey, scene of a gigantic explosion yesterday. The fire was brought under control within an hour and did small damage but it stimulated the investigation of reports of a big sabotage plot against British war factories. Scotland Yard chiefs held a secret conference at thc gunpowder works this morning as local gossips buzzed reports that the explosion had been due either to German agents or communists. It was understood that there had been three attempts at sabotage at the gigantic Waltham Abbey plant, covering an area with a circumference of seven miles, before yesterday's blast.
