Business Burned

FACTORY GUTTED. Blaze at Enmore. FIREMEN'S STIFF FIGHT SYDNEY. Sunday.
Firemen engaged in a stiff battle against a fire which destroyed the entire stock of Mr. F. A. Denning's furniture factory at Enmore last night, and threatened to engulf other buildings in the street. The outbreak commenced at Graham and Bennett's cotton wool packing factory adjoining, practically gutting this building and quickly found its way into the adjoining factory, in which a total loss was sustained. An ample supply of highly inflammable fuel fed the flames, and it was only with the greatest difficulty that the flames were checked, after they had almost secured a grip on Waybeck's kettle factory next door, which was partly damaged.[1]

Firemen engaged in a stiff battle last night against a fire which destroyed the entire premises and stock of Mr. F. A.

The outbreak commenced in Graham and Bennett's cotton wool packing factory adjoining, practically gutting this building, and quickly found its way into Dennings's factory, in which a total loss was suffered. With the highly inflammable fuel, it was only with the greatest difficulty that the flames were checked after they had almost secured a grip on Waybeck's kettle factory, next door, which was partially damaged.[2]
