Red Cross Unit Will
A fire of unknown origin, just be­
fore five o’clock Wednesday eve­
ning, destroyed what was probably
the oldest building in or adjacent to ,
, Coquille. It was located in the tim­
ber and brush, on the trail leading
up hill from the eastern end of Fifth
The fire department answered
promptly but it was impossible to
reach it with hose from a hydrant,
and it was completely destroyed. As_
far as the Department men could
ascertain the building was not oc­
cupied. The flames shot up into
the air for more than SO feet and set
nearby brush afire and the boys of
the department called the County
Fire Patrol to take over.
This building was finished by 8.
