SOS The New*. Frederick, Md., Friday. November M, 1951 Fire In Auto Body Works Volunteer firemen by hand rolled scorched automobiles out from under a burning ceiling as a gene ral alarm fire broke out in the paint shop of the Frederick Auto Body Works, rear of 508 West Patrick street, early Thursday night. Quick action »y the firemen confined the damage to an estimated $1,500. The biggest part of the blaze was confined to the false ceiling on the north half of the cement-block quonset-type building. Firefightmg was done with booster streams and pike-poles pulling down the ceiling below the domed sheet-iron roof All city engines were called at 8-15 p. m after the first alarm was founded for the United engine, floodlight truck and Citizens hook- and-ladder Plenty Of Smoke When firemen arrived they found smoke pouring from the building on a wide lot behind a Route 40 service station Gail Willard Cook, operator* of the auto body works opened a small door permitting firemen to raise overhead door? and push two automobiles, both with first or priming coats of paint on them, from the shop The automobiles were rippling with fire where new paint had caught The horn of one machine was short-circuited and screeched raucously Not understandable to Capt Melvin Sen wearing of the Independent Hose Co, was the fact that the more scorched of the two automobiles had all windows up but upholstery vuthin was smouldering He dragged the burning upholstery out of the car when it was finally taken from the burning building Stove Found O-Kav A heating stove in the northwest corner of the paint shop was not found defective, the operator said. A nearby stand of open paint did not burst mtc flames although the ceiling overhead was burning slowly through the coated plywood and ready to explode in flames momentarily. Booster streams from four engines were u-=ed to quickly subdue the blaze No major hoselmos were coupled up Cook and his workmen weir working in the larger body shop at 508 West Patrick street when the lights went out in their building One of the workmen went outside j and saw smoke coming from the paint shop He «ei/cd a hand fire extinguisher and with (he pro pnetor began working on thp spreading blaze while the fire engine* were called. From directly in front of the burning building which i* detached from and slightly southeast of the body works, an attendant of the Het5 and Smith service station, 506 West Patrick, stopped filling an auto tank and grabbed another extinguisher. Half blinded by smoke the first volunteer firemen on the scene exhausted their supplies of chemical just as engines arrived Cook refused to reveal the names of the car owners He t.aid the loss is partially covered by insurance.
