companies respond d to the alarm and soon
bad tha fir partially- under control. Aa
hour after, the fire started Umbers and In

Chief Swlngley says that th successive
collapses of floor and walls cam without
warning and At ft tlms when the fir seemed
to have been placed under control.
"To all appearances.", said th chief.
"there was aia danger ,9 th plpemen wh
went Into th upper floors.
"Tba fir was all on th fourth and fifth
floor and more on th fifth than On th
fourth. Under such circumstances no on
would expect a building to collapa.
"With Dan Steele, , foreman of No. II.
were Cbsrlea Krenning of No. It and Mike
Keboe of No. IS.
"Thoe ot us wbo wer in front of ths
bu'fjdlng heard a crash at th rear, but did
ftot know etaotly what bad happened until
Krenning cam aut.
"Krenning ran to Asslstsnt Chief Thlemr.
H said: 'Chief,, th floor fell and two men
oa tha pip, are covered up.'

"Thierry and I called lor mem and as four

"Two minutes latsr cam th crash. I
never saw a catastrophe come so without
warning. I was knocked down by ths
debris and fall under, th water tower.
Wheal got up, -half stunned, the building
waa In ruins and th only thing that could
be don Waa' to put th men at work dig
ging to get out those Who were Inald."
Aocordlng to Chief ftwlagloy, oaa of tb
moat skillful battles against flames In tb
department's history had been fought. A
Conflagration that .half an hour befor bad
threatened a whole block at least and
might easily hav extended farther bad
The building, which was nearly fifty years
old, wss week and th water with which It
had been flooded loosened It Joists and
soaked It walls. When tha plpemen en
tered the walls were already tottering, but
' there was nothing to warn them of their
peril. When tb building collapsed th
debris Ailed th alley and fell clear across
Chestnut street. William O'Donnell, John
Purceli and William O'Connell of salvage
corps No. 1 were covering material with
tarpullns on an upper floor when th wall
atarted to (all. They were carried outward
with it and landed safely in th street.
William Wann, foreman of engtn com
pany No. IS. was on th second floor whan
th collaps cam. Falling piaater warned
him of It and he sllppsd down th banister
to th first floor and ran Into th street
Patrick - F. McCarthy and William
Jeulich, wb wer about to enter th build

rades, wer struck br tailing debris.
When th building fell all th light cir
