Fire In Kinston

Kinston, N.C., Jan. 5. – Fire in the large brick building owned by Dr. A.R. Miller, located on South Queen Street, about 6 o’clock last evening, caused a loss of from eight to ten thousand dollars.  The flames were just under the metal roof – a very hard place to reach with water.

The fire burned steadily until about 9 o’clock before the firemen had gotten it under control.  The stocks of the several stores under the building were practically ruined by the water.
