Clair, MI Exchange Hotel Fire, Apr 1893
Hotel Guests Rescued from Fire.
CLAIR, Mich., April 18.--The Exchange, the oldest hotel in this city, was destroyed by fire last night. So quickly did the flames shoot through the building that it was with difficulty the sleeping inmates were rescued. Orva Alger and William Lonanine were seriously burned about the head, face, and body. Loss, $5,000.
