A flue which caught fire at the

the cause of the tire department

The firemen request that people state
the nature of the fire when turning
In an alarm. For Instance, if It Is
only a flue burning out, the inform
ant should so state and the firemen
will take only the chemical engine
as that Is quite efficient to extln
gulsh such a blaze.
