SERIOUS FIRE AT THE MUMBLES. In the early hours of Saturday morning one of the most serious tires that has occurred at the Mumbles broke out at the Ship and Castle Hotel, kept by Mr. A. Parkman, a well-known local artist. The Swansea Fire Brigade were summoned to the spot, and arrived by road, with the manual engine, as soon as the cir- cumstances permitted. The fire had by this time taken a great hold on the building, and the whole of the inmates escaped with the greatest difficulty, some in their nightdresses. The brigade experienced con- siderable trouble in getting water, and at last resorted to the sea, the tide being at its height. The firemen rushed into the sea and pumped the salt water over the burning building. It was, however, impossible to save the pile, which was completely gutted, whilst the neighbouring bouses on either side were considerably damaged. The occupants lost practically the whole of their belongings, and amongst the property destroyed were a number of valuable pictures owned by Mr. Parkman. J
