REPORT. 



Chief Engineer's Office, 

City Hall, January 2, 1871. 

To His Honor the Mayor, and City Council of the City 
of Boston: 

Gentlemen, — By the ordinance of the city it becomes my duty, 
as Chief Engineer, to present the Thirty-third Annual Report of 
the Fire Department, being the eleventh since the introduction 
of Steam Engines. 

I submit for your consideration a detailed statement of the 
organization, its workings and condition, with statistics which I 
trust will be of interest to every member of the government. 

The items of interest presented and forming a part of this 
report, will be the organization of the department, a full and 
complete list of its members, their age, residence, and occupa- 
tion, with the number of their badge. Also, a list of the hy- 
drants and reservoirs where water can be obtained in case of 
fire, a list of all fires, the loss and insurance on the same as far 
as could be ascertained, together with such other information 
as the experience of the past would seem to suggest. 

Upon assuming the duties and responsibilities of this office, I 
instituted a thorough and rigid investigation into all of the 
working details of the department, and issued such orders as in 
my judgment were demanded to place the same on a systematic 
basis, and secure to the city prompt and vigilant service of its 
members, and I have the satisfaction of stating that for good 
order, sobriety, discipline, and efficiency, the Fire Department 
of the city of Boston, as now organized, is excelled by no other 
in this country. 



4 City Document. — No. 14. 

The Department as now organized has one Chief, fourteen 
assistant engineers, and a secretary, who are elected annually 
by concurrent vote of the City Council in the month of Febru- 
ary or March ; four hundred and fifty members, who are recom- 
mended by the Board of Engineers, appointed by His Honor 
the Mayor, confirmed by the Board of Aldermen, and hold their 
position as firemen during good behavior. They are divided 
into thirty-eight companies, as follows: Twenty-one steam 
engine companies, ten horse hose companies, and seven hook 
and ladder companies. 

The Board of Engineers are assigned for duty by the Chief 
in the several fire districts. The following table will show the 
assignment for duty : —

unfit for service, amounts to $4,125.81, which has been paid in to 
the City Treasurer. 

For a detailed statement of the expenditures of this depart- 
ment, see table of expenditures. 

FIRES. 

During the past year the number of fires have exceeded the 
number of any previous year during the organization of this de- 
partment, there having been four hundred and ninety-seven, an 
increase of one hundred and twelve over the previous years. 
Yet we have to congratulate our citizens that of this large. 



8 City Document. — No. 14. 

number of fires there has been but one serious conflagration, 
namely, that at East Boston, on the 25th of July, — one of the 
warmest days of the season, and during the dryest time that 
Boston ever experienced, everything being thoroughly pre- 
pared by the rays of a scorching sun for just such a confla- 
gration as took place. It was conquered only by the almost 
superhuman efforts of the members of this department, and by 
the valuable assistance rendered by Chelsea and Cambridge, 
for which the department feels under great obligations. 

The total loss by fires this year amounts to $855,571, di- 
vided and classed as follows : On buildings, $295,043 ; on mer- 
chandise, $560,528. The total insurance amounts to $786,463 ; 
with $264,203 on buildings, and $522,260 on merchandise. 
For full particulars of each fire, see tables of fires during the 
year. 

FIRES AND THEIR EXTINGUISHMENT. 

Under the present organization of our department the extin- 
guishment of fires is a duty and not a pastime. Each member 
is assigned to duty by his foreman. Knowing how much de- 
pends on him personally for the accomplishment of the work to 
which he is called by alarms from time to time, he enters upon 
it with a consciousness that the Chief demands prompt and de- 
termined action. With this feeling pervading the entire organ- 
ization, success must attend their efforts if directed properly ; 
but in the fight for the mastery their efforts seem to be baffled 
at every point in our large ware-houses by the constant prac- 
tice of blocking up every window with merchandise, and leav- 
ing only narrow passage-ways through each story. To ascend 
the stairways is frequently rendered impossible by the density 
of the smoke ; to fight it from ladders is impracticable, as a 
direct application of water cannot be made to the burning 
mass ; hence the interior of the building becomes in a short 
time a solid body of fire, acting as a blast furnace to melt the 



Fire Department. 9 

most solid structures, and thousands of dollars worth of prop- 
erty are destroyed unnecessarily by this eagerness to occupy 
every inch of room in our warehouses. I hope this matter will 
receive from the committee on legislative matters of our city 
that attention its importance demands. 

CAUSES OP FIRE. 

It appears from the statistics of fires in every large city in 
our Union, that thirty per cent have been traced to the follow- 
ing causes, viz : The deposit of ashes in wooden boxes or bar- 
rels, where they have been known to retain their heat sufficient 
for weeks to set fire. As it is the duty of the city to use all 
proper means to prevent, as weH as to extinguish fires, I would 
recommend that the city, by ordinance, compel the owners or 
occupants to construct bins of incombustible material, or use 
iron vessels, for the deposit of ashes in all dwellings and stores 
in the city. 

Defective flues, the result of faulty masonry, and other causes, 
are a fruitful source of fires. To this cause of fires the chief en- 
gineer's attention has been called many times during the past year, 
by the complaint of our citizens ; yet he is powerless to remedy 
the evil. Look in whatever direction you may, you will see chim- 
neys, partially or completely honey-combed, from the action of 
the coal gases, and their tops out of line, so as to jeopardize,- in 
windy weather, the lives and limbs of pedestrians passing along 
the streets. I would ask the attention of the City Council to 
this evil. 

HOT AIR FURNACES AND STEAM FOR WARMING BUILDINGS. 

The unsafe manner in which hot air furnaces and steam pipes 
are constructed must be apparent to all, from the large number 
of fires constantly taking place in every town and city in the 
State, and especially in churches and large public buildings. It 
would seem almost incredible that such a manifest disregard for 



10 City Document. — No. 14. 

the safety of life and property could exist ; but such is the fact. 
I know that many, and especially those that are engaged in put- 
ting in steam pipes for heating, assert that fire cannot be pro- 
duced by steam pipes coming in contact with wood ; but years 
of experience in this department have proved to the contrary ; 
for wood, subjected to a constant heat, becomes in time chemi- 
cally changed in its nature, desiccation is constantly going on, 
exhausting the oxygen contained in the wood in its natural state, 
leaving it composed of nearly pure carbon, when the slightest 
increase of heat over that to which it is ordinarily subjected will 
produce combustion. Then, again, in case of fire in the build- 
ing, from any other cause, with steam pipes improperly con- 
structed, the wood, by contact, becomes as described above, and 
the fire appears in all parts of the building at one and the same 
time, thereby rendering the efforts of the firemen unavailable to 
its early extinguishment. 

UNSAFE BUILDINGS. 

The subject of unsafe buildings made so by poor construction 
and constant alterations, to convert them to different business 
purposes — is already in the hands of the Committee of the City 
Council on Legislative Matters* I trust this important matter, 
which involves the safety of life as well as property, will re- 
ceive the careful attention of the City Council, and the passage 
of the act now prepared, will be urged at the earliest possible 
time. 

HOUSES. 

The number of houses occupied by this department is thirty- 
three. They are under the charge of the Superintendent of Public 
Buildings. During the past four years the attention of the City 
Government has been directed to the wants of the department 
in its houses, and the present year the houses occupied by 
Engine Cos. Nos. 2, 5, 11 and 14, and Hook-and-Ladder Co. 
No. 2, have been thoroughly remodelled and made convenient 



Fire Department. 11 

and comfortable. The houses now occupied by this department 
are not only creditable but an ornament to the city. The atten- 
tion of the government to the comforts of the men, by affording 
them good quarters and facilities for bathing, has had a marked 
effect on the morals of the men. Their pride is at once enlisted 
in the neatness of their quarters, and a spirit of emulation pre- 
vails among the companies. The walls are adorned with pic- 
tures, the library cases filled with books of choice reading ; their 
sitting room furnished neatly and appropriately, and the men 
made more efficient by their moral and intellectual training in 
their leisure hours. 

By vote of the City Council, the house recently occupied by 
Engine Co. No. 4, in Scollay's Building, Tremont Row, has been 
taken down for the purpose of widening the street. The engine 
has been placed in a stable on Bulfinch street, at the head of 
Howard street. I trust the City Council will at once purchase 
a site for the location of this company as near the City Hall as 
possible. The experience of the past has shown most conclu- 
sively that true economy to the city demands that an engine be 
located in this vicinity. The amount of property saved to the 
city by this company, on account of its location, and promptness 
in extinguishing so many fires in the incipient stages, thereby 
saving to the city a large expense which would be incurred by 
giving alarms, is such that I trust the price of land will not longer 
delay the action of the Government in the purchase of a site, 
and the erection of ,a house for this company, near the old 
location. 

I desire also to call the attention of the City Council to the 
houses occupied by Hose Co. No. 2, on Hudson street; Hose 
Co. No. 5, on Shawmut avenue ; and Hose Co. No. 7, on Cabot 
street; as being unfit in every particular for the purpose for 
which they are used. I trust the City Council will take the 
necessary steps to give these companies new houses. I would 
also call the attention to Hose House, No. 9, on B street. 



12 City Document. — No. 14. 

This house is very much out of repair, inconvenient and uncom- 
fortable. 

HORSES. 

There have been purchased for this department six pairs of 
horses, for the following companies, namely : One pair for Hook 
& Ladder No. 1, one pair for Hook & Ladder No. 2, one pair 
for Hook & Ladder No. 4, one pair for Engine No. 3, one pair 
for Engine No. 15, one horse for Hose No. 2 and one horse for 
Engine No. 6. 

During the winter season, the force of horses is increased to 
the number of twenty-four, at an expense to the city of their 
keeping only. 

Three horses which became unfit for duty in this department 
have been sold, and the receipts paid into the City Treasury. 

HOSE. 

There have been purchased, and added to this department dur- 
ing the past year, 10,152 feet of 2£-inch hose. 

The standard for hose is as follows. Pure oak, city tanned, 
Baltimore, or Philadelphia leather, and warranted such, known 
as " overweight," the average weight of which is not less than 
twenty-two pounds to the side, and none to be used which shall 
weigh less than twenty pounds. 

Copper rivets, — double riveted, twenty-two rivets to the run- 
ning foot, of size known as No. 8 wire. Splices to be made with 
thirteen rivets, of sizes known as No. 7 wire. 

Said hose, when finished with three loops and rings, to weigh 
not less than sixty-four pounds to each fifty feet, exclusive of 
the couplings, and warranted to stand a pressure of not les3 
than (200) two hundred pounds to the square inch. 

Couplings to be of the same thread as now in use by this 
city ; the tail-bands and tail-pieces to be two inches in width 
and length respectively, and to be secured by three rivets.

There has been condemned during the past year 6,150 feet of 
hose ; and at the large fires of B. Boston, July 25th, and High- 
lands, July 27th, 1,119 feet was entirely burned up. 

APPARATUS. 

At the close of this municipal year, the apparatus connected 
with this department is in excellent condition, and the most 
thorough repair. During the last four years it has been almost 
entirely changed. The following is a list of the engine, hose 
and hook-and-ladder carriages which have been purchased dur- 
ing this time, to take the place of those which had become 
unfit for service, or which were not deemed worthy of any ex- 
tensive repairs, namely : Eagle Engine, No. 3 ; Barnicoat, No. 4; 
Elisha Smith, No., 5 ; T. O. Amory, No. 7 ; Northern Liberty, 
No. 8; Cataract, No. 10; Tremont, No. 13; Dearborn, No. 
14; Washington Hose, No. 1 ; Union, No. 2 ; Franklin, No. 3 ; 
Chester, No. 4; Suffolk, No. 5; Eliot, No. 7; Tremont, No. 8; 
Lawrence, No. 9; Bradlee, No. 10; Warren Hook-and-Ladder, 
No. 1 ; Franklin, No. 3 ; Hancock, No. 5. Of this number there 
were purchased during this year, Nos, 7, 10, 13 and 14, Hose 
2, and Hook and Ladder No. 3.

FIRE APPARATUS AT STATIONARY POINTS. 

HOSE CARRIAGES AND HOSE. 

There is apparatus located at the following points, for the 
more immediate protection of the neighborhood, and without 
organized companies : — 

One hose-carriage, with four hundred feet of 2-inch hose, at 
the Mill-dam Village. 

One hose-carriage, with two hundred and fifty feet of 2-inch 
leather hose, at the City Hospital, on Harrison avenue, and under 
the care of the driver of Hose Company No. 4. 

One hose-carriage at the Hook-and-Ladder house on Harri- 
son avenue, with one thousand feet of hose. 

Two hundred feet of cotton hose at City Stable, South End. 

At each of the above places are the needful wrenches, goose- 
necks, and pipes to be used with the hose. 

One hose-carriage, with 1,000 feet of 2£-inch hose, at Hose 1 
house, Salem street, to be used in cases of large fires. 

SPARE APPARATUS. 

Deer Island. One hand engine, with 800 feet of cotton 
hose, belonging to the Fire Department, and stored here to 
be used by convicts within the prison, if required. 

Steam fire-engines, formerly known as Nos. 3, 4, 5, 7 and 10 
are kept as spare engines. 

One hook-and ladder carriage, formerly known as No. 1, 
kept as spare carriage. 

One hand engine at Hook-and-Ladder No. 3 House, Ware- 
ham street. 

Hose-carriages, formerly known as Nos. 1, 2, 3, 5 and 8. 

FIRE LADDERS. 

There are fire-ladders kept in the following locations, to be 
used only in case of fire in the immediate vicinity, before other 
apparatus can be brought to bear. 



Fire Department. 15 

Engine-house on Fourth, near K street, 4 ladders. 
Station-house on Broadway, South Boston, 4 ladders. 
Engine-house on Chelsea street, East Boston, 4 ladders. 
Engine-house on River street, foot of Mt. Vernon street, 3 
ladders. 

REPAIRS. 

The amount of repairs the past year has been very large. 
The extensive conflagration, July 25th, at East Boston, and the 
one following on the 27th, at the Highlands, damaged the appa- 
ratus to an extent that caused an outlay of ten thousand dollars 
to the department to place it where it was previous to thesfc 
fires, — or two-thirds of the estimate, and one-third of the whole 
amount paid for repairs to the apparatus during the year. The 
running duty of this department must of necessity be great. 
With an increase of one hundred and twelve fires over the pre- 
vious year, with horse railroad tracks in all of the main ave- 
nues, the wear and strain on the engines is so great, that I 
attribute seven-tenths of the cost to this cause alone. 

FUEL WAGONS. 

One fuel wagon, kept at the Hose-house, in N. Grove street; 
one at the old Hose-house, on Salem street; one at Engine 11 
house, on Sumner street, East Boston; one at Hook-and-Ladder 
3 house, on Harrison avenue; one at Engine 14 house, on Cen- 
tre street, Roxbury District; one at Engine 13 house, on Cabot 
street, Roxbury District; one at Engine house No. 16, Lower 
Mills, Ward 16; one at Engine house No. 17, Meeting House 
Hill, Ward 16 ; capable of conveying about two tons each, to be 
used in case of large fires, when more fuel is needed than is 
carried on the engines. 



16 City Document. — No. 14. 



COAL HOUSES. 

No. 1 is located on Salem street. This house is in good re- 
pair, and supplies for the north and west sections of the city- 
are taken from it in case of a large fire. 

No. 2 is located on Orleans street, East Boston. This is a 
new house, and, in case of fire, supplies are taken for the East 
Boston department. 

There is no house for Wagon No. 3 at present, the one for- 
merly occupied by it having been taken down for the purpose 
of building house for Engine No. 7. I recommend that a build- 
fag be built in the immediate vicinity for its use. 

No. 4 is located at Engine-house No. 14,Roxbury District. 

No. 5 is located at Hook-and-Ladder house No. 5, Fourth 
street, near Dorchester street, South Boston. 

Other apparatus connected with this department, unless spe- 
cially located, will be classed under the head of apparatus in 
charge of the several companies. 

WATER. 

Having called the attention of the City Council in my previ- 
ous reports to the scarcity of water in certain sections of our 
city, and the entire destitution in others, for fire purposes, with 
the cause, and having presented, in my judgment, the remedy for 
the evils complained of, it would seem unnecessary for me at 
this time to dwell further upon the subject, but I would suggest 
that, upon the introduction of water in any section of our city 
not now supplied, large pipes, instead of the small ones now in 
use for distributing pipes, be laid, and the Lowry or Hill 
hydrant be introduced, instead of the hydrants now in use. 

ANNUAL PARADE. 

The two hundred and fortieth anniversary of the settlement 
of Boston was celebrated by the annual parade and inspection 
of the Boston Fire Department, which was a credit to the depart- 



Fire Department. 17 

ment, and satisfactory to the City Government and citizens. 
Under the direction of the Joint Committee on Fire Depart- 
ment, the department assembled on Beacon street at twelve 
o'clock, noon, for inspection ; and at half-past twelve His Honor 
the Mayor and the City Council, accompanied by the Shawrnut 
Brass Band, arrived upon the ground, and marched in review 
under the marshalship of the Chief Engineer. The department 
was drawn up in line, the right resting on Berkeley street. After 
the review the department paraded through several of the 
principal streets, arriving at Faneuil Hall promptly at three 
o'clock, where a dinner was in waiting, furnished by the City 
Government. The Hall was beautifully decorated by Col. Beals, 
with flags, bunting, and all the paraphernalia of a fireman, with 
mottoes at either end of the hall. The members of the depart- 
ment enjoyed themselves for a couple of hours in speech-making 
and listening to the beautiful music that was performed at in- 
tervals by the Shawmut, Metropolitan and Brown's Bands. I 
trust the City Council will continue these annual parades. 

By the annexation of the town of Dorchester to the city of 
Boston, there was turned over to this department by S. H. 
Hebard, Chief Engineer of Dorchester, on the 3d day of Janu- 
ary, 18 TO, all of the property in possession of that department 
belonging to the town. The organized force of that town was 
as follows : 6 Steam Fire Engines, 2 Horse Hose-Carriages, 
and 2 Hook-and-Ladder Carriages, fully equipped for service 
with 17 horses. The number of men enrolled as members, was 
105; classified as follows: 1 Chief Engineer; 5 Assistant 
Engineers; 6 Enginemen; 6 Firemen or Stokers; 10 Drivers, 
who act as clerks of the companies; 8 Foremen, and 69 mem- 
bers. The houses are the finest in the department, thoroughly 
adapted to the wants of a steam department, being neatly fur- 
nished in all of their apartments. By a vote of the City 
Council in the month of May, this force was reduced to 1 Assist- 
ant Engineer and 84 members, being a reduction of 20 men.

ACCIDENTS AT FIEES, ETC. 

It becomes my painful duty to record the following casualties 
that have occurred to members of the department during the past 
year, while in the discharge of their duties. 

Thomas Young, a member of Engine No. 6, while in the act 
of coupling hose at the Portland-street fire, January 14th, was 
struck by a passing team in such a manner as to throw him upon 
his face, thereby breaking his lower jaw. 

George Demary, member of Engine No. 10, was severely 
burned about the face and hands while at work at the Gore Block 
fire, March 19th, which rendered him unfit for any duty for sev- 
eral months. 

Assistant Engineer John S. Jacobs, who had command of the 
fire on the Friend-street side, at the Canal-street fire, April 30th, 
found it necessary, in order to attack the fire in a more direct 
manner, to raise a forty-foot ladder against the end wall of one 
of the tenement houses on Friend-street court ; and by this means 
an important position was secured. The engineer, with Engine 
Company No. 4, got well at work at this point, when some one 
in an adjoining building pushed out the gable end of that build- 
ino 1 which was on fire. In its fall it struck Capt. Jacobs on the 
head knocking him from a distance of forty feet among the 
debris below. This additional weight caused the wall to topple 
and fall, carrying with it Ex-Captain John A. Fynes, into the 
burning rubbish below. Capt. Bagley, who was in command, 
jumped to the ladder, and succeeded in clinging to it, and was 
rescued without injury. Capts. Jacobs and Fynes were taken 
up insensible, and carried to the apothecary store of Dr. T. L. 
Jenks, where every assistance was rendered until surgeons could

RULES FOR THE DISTRIBUTION 

OF 

THE FIRE APPARATUS. 



Engineer's Office, Fire Department, 
Boston, January 1, 1871. 

To the Officers and Members of the Fire Department : 

Gentlemen, — The new method of striking the Fire Alarm 
renders it necessary that the rules for the distribution of the 
apparatus should be explained, that it may be distinctly under- 
stood. 

The accompanying document is furnished, definitely stating 
the numbers of each box, and their location, and with expla- 
nations for your guidance and instruction. 

JOHN S. DAMRELL, 
Chief Engineer Boston Fire Department. 



Fire Department. 67 



CITY OF BOSTON. 



FIRE-ALARM TELEGRAPH. 



Alarms are sounded by striking the number of the box upon 
the Alarm Bells, and upon the Gongs in the Engine-House3. 

Examples : To announce the existence of a fire near Box No. 
41 (Old South Church), the bells will strike four, make a pause 
of a few seconds, then strike one, thus 4 — 1, This will be 
repeated at intervals of about one minute. 

For a fire near Box No. 145 (South Boston Point), the bells 
will strike one, make a pause, then strike four, another pause, 
then strike five, thus : 1 — 4 — 5. 

Second Alarms are sounded by striking ten blows. Third 
Alarms are sounded by striking twelve blows twice, thus : 12 — 12. 

In cases where the entire department are required, alarms 
are sounded by striking twelve blows three times, thus : 12 — 
12 — 12. 

In cases where Hook k Ladder Companies only are wanted, 
signal to be given by striking ten blows once, with the number 
of the Company struck twice, thus : Hook & Ladder No. one 
10—1 — 1. Hook & Ladder No. four, 10 — 4 — 4. Hook& 
Ladder No. seven, 10 — 7 — 7. 

If more than one Hook & Ladder Company is wanted, the 
signal will be given thus : Hook & Ladder one and three, 10 — 
1 — 1 — 3 — 3. Hook & Ladder two and four, 10 — 2 — 2 

— 4 — 4. Hook & Ladder five and seven, 10 — 5 — (5 — 7 

— 7. 

No person will give alarms for the same fire (after the first 
alarm has been given), without an order from an Engineer, and 
the person so ordered will be sure to go to the same box from 
which the first alarm was given, and report the same to the 
Chief Engineer.

DIRECTIONS TO THOSE HOLDING SIGNAL KEYS. 

If a fire is discovered, go to the nearest Box to the fire. Pull 
the slide all the way down once, and let go. If possible, wait 
at the Box, so as to direct the Firemen to the fire. If you hear 
no reply on the Bells, pull again. If no reply after the third 
trial, go to the nearest Box. The Police, upon hearing the Bells, 
will spring their rattles and call the number of the Box. 

CAUTIONS. 

1. Be sure there is a fire before sounding the alarm. 

2. Never sound the alarm for a fire seen at a distance. 

3. Never open the Box or touch the apparatus, except in 
case of fire. 



Fire Department. 73 

4. Be sure your Box is locked before leaving it. 

5. Never let the key go out of your possession, unless called 
for by the Superintendent. 

6. If you remove from your house or place of business, return 

the key to the Fire Alarm Office. Don't leave it with the new 

tenant.

city hall.

Chairman of Committee on Fire Alarms.
