The fire alarm was sounded

32 Third ward , business section.
However , the fire was about six
miles away. Sparks , undoubted
ly dropping from the fire box of
a passing engine , had set fire to
the Burlington bridge spanning
the Phtte river between this city
Help was summoned from this
city. The department , as a mat
ter of course , could be of no as
sistance. However , section men
and other helpers were sent to
the scene on an engine and the
fire was checked by sawing off
the burning ends' and dropping
them into the water. Fortunat
ely the fire originated toward the
eastern terminus of the bridge.
A high wind would otherwise
have hastened the destruction
and made it more difficult to
check. Traffic over the Burling
