The house was owned by Vincent Giorno and located back of the Giomo home at 582 Park boulevard. The alarm .was turned in at 9:50,, after the fire had spread, apparently from the rear, well toward the front of the building which was divided by a wide hall. Fire Chief Al Bechtol beat the department to the fire by several minutes and the house was aflame over half its interior. The family was away from honie. Twenty-flve firemen were engaged in the battle, 1700 feet of hose were used and 60,000 gallons of water were poured into the flames. The house was covered with a sheetiron roof which confined the flames to the interior and delayed discovery. It could not be learned who turned in the alarm. The origin of the fire is a mat^ ter of conjecture. A son of the family had been home early in the evening, and had cooked a lunch in the kitchen and had built a aiem Butler, C. H. Demaray, W.
