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 without difficulty.
