Mrs. Nelle McGrew, twenty minutes, and as the department came running up Foster road and halted at the scene of the tire, lent« people rent the air with cheers of appreciation in their efforts to render assistance. It wa« several minutes after the department arrived before the professional fire fighters succeeded in opening the hy drant, and then only after the valves were forced open with continuous battering and hammering. The fact that the burning structure was small and that no wind prevailed is all that prevented a serious conflagration, as several other residences stood in close proximity. The fire started from an over-turned lamp in the hands of Mrs. Helliwell, and the entire structure was a mass of flames before the members of the family had time to save any of their effects, and their's was almost a total loss. Tite Captain of the Sunnyside Station says that both end-gate valves of the hydrant were broken, and it was also ascertained that county sprinklers had been using the hydrant a few days pre vious and it is the opinion of all that was tlie cause of it being out of com mission. The matter has been r«-|>orted to the proper authorities.
