40 BUILDINGS BURN AT CAMBRIDGE, MD.

BUSINESS CENTER DESTROYED BY $150,000 BLAZE.

Cambridge, Md., Aug. 1. -- Fire that started in a stable gained great headway, owing to the breaking down of fire fighting apparatus, and sweeping through the business center of the town did damage estimated at from $100,000 to $150,000 before the citizens, who turned out en masse, succeeded in bringing it under control.
In the meantime two score or more churches, business buildings, residences and other structures had been destroyed or more or less damaged.
In response to appeals from here, Salisbury, Md., and Seaford Del., sent aid, but when it arrived the flames were under control.
