The blaze occurred at the back of tile store where an overheated electric motor caused Ihc blaze. A fire department official this morning said that, there was dense smoke ,imd that a partition was set afire.

The actual collecting -will be done by employes of the Naugatuck street department under the capable direction of Superintendent Harold Murtha whose supervision in the past has been of such great aid in t.hosc patriotic efforts. Street department trucks will collect on the east side of the borough on Monday, and residents are a-skcd to leave their accumula^ tions of paper on the curb in front of the houses, tied up as tightly as xjssible so that a minimum of .ime will be lost at each stop.

Stores on the East side are askod o pile paper boxes, etc., on the urb in front of the store and the rucks will moke theje collections as they pasts along the street. Bristol Ten-ace residents are asked to 'have iheir accumulations t waste paper, ready on Monday • as the collecting will be done in liat section, the first day of the. rive, also.
