Toledo, OH Fires, Jul 1896


The Firemen Are Kept Busy Responding to Alarms.

TOLEDO, July 14.---Two incendiary fires occurred here, and at one of them a policeman and a fireman were badly hurt. The accident occurred at the planing mill of McLaren & Sprague, which was totally destroyed. The loss will approximate $90,000. While this fire was raging a second broke out at the Toledo Knitting company, which was extinguished with a small loss. Both fires were evidently of incendiary origin. A third call also came about the same time from the new St. Charles hotel, but the blaze there was unimportant.
