The flue had burned out that morning and the bricks heated to an 
unusual extent by masses of soot that fell down, and is supposed to 
have smouldered on through the forenoon ; the heat set the work on 
fire round the chimney on the first floor and the flre found its way 
up between the partitions of the first and second floors and first made

its appearance in the ctambers of the third story ; the track of the 
fire was curious to behold ; only a space of about the size of a man's 
arm was burned, the flames going out behind as it passed up between 
the partitions through the three entire stories, very much as a fuse 
burns ; between the ceiling and the rooms in the third story and the 
roof, was an open space of about six or eight inches, and the divid- 
ing walls of the houses not being carried up to the roof, left this 
space continuous, consequently, as soon as the fire escaped from 
between the partitions it spread over the entire block, and threat- 
ened the neighborhood with serious conflagration. At this fire the 
Mystic water was brought into service, the works operating well.
