      «b»PETERS STREET FIRE CAUSES #24,800 LOSS
      Spontaneous Combustion in Sale Loft Causes the Blaze.

      «/b» Fire started by spontaneous combustion in the sail loft of M. Fauria & Sons, 1127 North Peters street, Saturday morning caused a loss of $24,800 before it was controlled. The flames spread to the three-story brick building at 1131 North Peters street and the two-story brick building at 1123 North Peters street.
      Seventeen thousand dollars' worth of sails, paint and oil, in the plant of M. Fauria & Sons, occupying the second and third floors of the building in which the fire started, was destroyed, the loss of this firm being total, owing to the highly inflammable nature of its goods. They were insured for $5000. The fire originated on the second floor, where was stored a quantity of sails that had been painted waterproof, as well as paints and oils.
      The building, valued at $9000, and owned by John Mailhies, was damaaged about $7000. The ground floor of this building was occupied by Paul Paretto as an oyster shucking and packing house, of which the contents, valued at $400, were totally destroyed, with no insurance.
      The building at 1131 North Peters street, to which the fire first spread, was valued at $5000, and owned by Roco Respoli. The damage to the building was about $200, covered by insurance. The building is occupied by the owner, the first floor as a restaurant and the second and third floors as a residence. The contents, valued at $500, were damaged about $100.
      The wholesale produce house of Frank Dantonio, 1123 North Peters street, to which the fire next spread, was damaged about $100, the loss being to the building, which is valued at $5000. The stock, worth $12,000, was not damaged.
