Norton, MA Talbot & Sons Mill Wool Storehouse Fire, May 1909

$100,000 Fire in Norton, Mass.

NORTON, Mass., May 27.---Three wool storehouses, connected with the George A. Talbot & Sons mill here, were burned to the ground to-day, causing a loss of $100,000. Each storehouse was afire when the flames were discovered, and this fact leads the police to believe that the blaze was of incendiary origin. The wool burned was owned by twenty firms, located in all parts of the country.
