Wood-Pile at Roth Store

It was not exactly a. case of spon

case of incendiarism, but Just the
same the big woodpile In the rear o
the Roth Grocery store, in the fas
alley .between State and Court
street, s was-ablaze, and had com
menced to burn fiercely before the
Tire department could get around
the corner last night, and they were
"Johnny-on-the-spot ' at that.
It seems that an electric coffee
roaster In the back room of the
store, was ft in wnrte in o'rlnrl some
coffee fnr a lata customer, and in
some war. not vet determined, the
wire leading from the outside of the
store set fire to a pile of wood which
was very close to the wall of the
building. Some defect in the wiring
nresumablv scattered tha electric
sparks in the wood pile.
A few of the firemen climbed up
on top of the wood pile and threw
the top sticks of wood to the ground
in order to get action with the hose
on the flames.
The fire was then extinguished
