REPORT 



OF THE

OF THE 



FIRE DEPARTMENT 



OF THE 



CITY OF CHARLESTOWN, 



FEBRUARY 28, 1861. 



CITY OF CHAELESTOWN. 



In Board of Mayor and Aldermen, April 16, 186L Accepted, 
and Ordered) That the same be printed with the Annual Eeport of 
Keceipts and Expenditures by the Treasurer, and sent down for con- 
currence. 

CHARLES POOLE, City Clerk, 



In Common Council} April 23, 1861. Concurred. 

Gr. Y. Hall, 



CITY OF CHARLESTOWN 



February 28^ 1861, 

To the Hoiiorable the Board of Mayor and Aldermen and Common 

Council : — 
Gentlemen : — 

In compliance with the City Ordinance regulating the Fire Depart- 
ment, I herewith present ray Annual Report, containing a list of the 
officer^ and members attached to the department, and the condition 
of the apparatus in their charge. Also, the number of fires, the past 
year, together with the amount of loss, and the insurance on the 
same ; the number of reservoirs, wells, hydrants and other sources 
from which water can be obtained, in case of fire, and the expenses 
of the year, ending this date. 

By order of the City Council, the Leading Hose has been increased 
in size, from two inches to two and a half, in diameter. Acting under 
that order the Board have, by purchase and exchange, procured 
eighteen hundred feet of the large size, giving to each engine three 
hundred feet. If the twelve hundred feet, asked for by the Board, 
this year, is granted, it will obviate the necessity of purchasing any 
Hose for this City for two years, at least. 

The companies attached to the several Engines, Hook and Ladder 
and Hose Carriages are full, and the members prompt, when duty 
calls, and I am happy to add, that a feeling of harmony prevails 
throughout the department. For proof of their efficiency, I will 
refer you to the large number of fires, the past year, and the small 
amount of loss. 

The Department has been called out, the past year, for fires and 
alarms, within the City, eighty-four times ; out of the City, eighty- 
eight times ; making a total of one hundred and seventy-two fires 
and alarms. The value of property destroyed is $13,355; amount 
of insurance, $5,005 ; loss above insurance, $8.3.50. 



52 ENGINEER'S REPORT. 

During the past year six persons have been injured at fires in this 
City, viz : — at the fire, July 19th, at Mr. Hugh Kelley's stable, on 
Medford Street, a young man by the name of James Devlin, was 
struck by the spire of No. 1 Engine, and injured so as to cause his 
death. He was not a member of the Department. No blame could 
be attached to the Company. 

August 13th, at the fire at Harding & Dodge's morocco factory, 
William B. Bass, a member of No. 1 Engine, was injured severely 
by falling from a shed, attached to the main building. 

October 17th, at the fire over the post office, Captain Benjamin 
Brintnall, foreman of Engine No. 5, and N. E. Abbott, James 
Plunkett, M. B. Kimball, members, were badly burned on their faces 
and hands by an explosion taking place, caused, in the opinion of 
the Board, by powder that had been carelessly left by some person 
or persons belonging to Warren Associates, on whose premiserS the 
fire originated. 

Bespectfully submitted,
