FIRE AT PRESTATYN. At about 10-30 on Monday night consider- able alarm was ereated by the ringing of the firebell, it having been found that. two large stacks of hay in a field near Bastion Road, belonging to Councillor John Pritchard, were on fire. The brigade quickly assembled, the engine being got out, horses attached, and a start made for the scene of the outbreak about eight minutes after the first ringing of the bell. The fire had got a fair hold when the brigade arrived, and it was found necessary to lay a considerable length of hose, the 0 engine having to pump water from a stream 0 some distance away. Eventually, however, a good flow of water was forthcoming, and the flames were subdued. The brigade found it necessary to remain on the scene until 3 a.m., otherwise there would have been another outbreak, as the hay continued to smoulder. The first part of the operations carried out by the brigade were under the directions of Lieutenaut Jones, but a little later Captain Greenwood arrived on the scene. We are informed that the loss is covered by insurance. It is a strange coincidence that some little time ago two other stacks in the same vicinity caught fire by some unknown means. This fact and the isolated position of the present stacks strengthen the belief that some incen- iiary has been at work.
