In Years Past

In 1914, fire shortly after two in the afternoon destroyed the seven room frame dwelling house on Forest Avenue Extension owned and occupied by Alfred Anderson. It broke out in large volume and the house burned very rapidly. The auto chemical made a hurried trip to the scene of the blaze but was too late even after their fast run to do much good. The house was located nearly two blocks south of the Jamestown city line on the Busti Road. It was built about two years previously. The loss was a very heavy one to Mr. and Mrs. Anderson, although it was understood to be partially covered by insurance. The house and contents was valued at about $3,000.
