Ford Car

The depot caught fire again Saturday, but the old building refused to burn. A spark from an engine caught in the roof among the shingles. Some one saw it and gave the alarm. The fire department turned out, but some one had drowned the little blaze with a bucket of water before they reached it. The only damage done was the destruction of a few shingles. The fire did not burn through the roof. The depot had caught fire three times in the past two years.
