April 18, 2014

In 1914, the home of George E. King of 520 Forest Ave., Jamestown, was badly damaged by fire at about 1:30 in the afternoon. The building was a two-story frame structure with a wing attached and the main portion was almost completely gutted. A member of King's family estimated the loss to be about $700, partially covered by insurance. The fire started in the front room on the ground floor from a chunk stove.
