Trying to Straighten Out the Moffat Street Fire in Carleton Place–Archie Hudson? Harold Fischer?

I have written about a fire in a body shop owned by Archie Hudson before– now I find a fire at Harold Fishers on Moffatt Street. So were they the same place?

When the fire occurred at Harold Fisher’s they really needed an aerial ladder to fight the fire of the frame garage that was called in at 1:30 am. Several cars were in the shop at the time and even one parked outside on Moffat Street had the interior burned. It took several hours to subdue the blaze and it was pointed out in many articles that Carleton Place needed an aerial ladder. So please help me straighten this out.
