New Orleans had $20C,C0 Blaze Which
New Orleans, La.—Fire broke out
in the uptown section of the city and
laid ruin to the Gallagher Transfet
& Storage Co., Lake Umbrella com-
pany’s building, and one residence and
damaged two others. Four men suf-
fered shocks from fallpn high tension
electric wires and one fireman was
overcome by smoke.
The driver of one of Gallagher’s
trucks attempled to crank his machine
in the rear of the building. The en
gine backfired, according to reports,
and a pile of excelsior in the rear of
the machine caught fire.
The fire hatl considerable headway
before the first pumper reached the
scene. Not only was the entire block
threatened by a total loss, but a still
greater loss would have resulted, but
for the quick action by Fire Chief Le-
feaux in extinguishing the flames on
the second floor of the two buildings
directly opposite the Lake building.
