Almonte Fire 1903

Almonte Fire 1903

A Destructive Blare. ; Early morning fires are getting to be a frequent occurrence in Almonte. The third blaze of the series occurred about 3 o’clock Monday morning when the alarm rang out for a fire in the frame dwelling house in the rear of Mr. Peter Young’s sash and door factory, owned and occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Nontell.

The fire engine was quickly on hand and Chief Willoughby’s braves were soon masters of the situation, but not before considerable damage had been done to the house. The fire is thought to have originated in an ash barrel in an outer shed. Mr. and Mrs. Nontell, who are now in the evening of life, were the only occupants of the house, and Mr. Nontell at the time confined to.bed through illness and had to be carried from the burn- burning building to Mr. Peter Young’s home. Then he was moved to his son’s residence on the 10th line. Much sympathy is felt and expressed for the aged couple in their loss, which will be heavy as there was no insurance on the building– Feb 13th 1903
