The Dalles Daily Chronicle (The Dalles, OR) 1899-09-09

Such a tooting and screeching of whistles as occurred at 1 :20 o'clock this morning was enough to waken a town twice the size of The Dalles; and when to those was soon added the awful clang of the fire bell, everybody was up and at the windows to ascertain if possible where the fire was. Such a headway had it gained that there was no trouble in discovering in what locality it was, but so deceiving is such a blaze that it was some time before those who remained down town determined that it was the old Harris house, just back of their present residence, and which was occupied by J. Cohen, who runs a racket store in the East End. Mrs. Cohen and the other members of the family were absent and only Mr. Cohen and his little boy were in the house at the time. They have no idea how the fire originated unless from fire which had been left in the stove or from a lamp which was burning. When they discovered it, they had just time to save themselves, and one of them grabbed a feather bed, so that all their furniture and belongings, including Mr. Cohen's watch, were destroyed. The Mt. Hood Hose Co. reached the scene, but could do nothing as there are no fire plugs in that vicinity, the nearest one being about a block this side of F. H. Howe's residence. The South Siders also started, but seeing how useless their trip was, abandoned it. Mr. Cohen was insured for $500, and Mr. Harris also has some insurance.
