DESTRUCTIVE FIRE AT CARDIFF. Shortly before half-past two o'clock on Sunday morning a fire was discovered to have broken out in the outfitting premises of Messrs. Lloyd Bros,, drapers and tailors, Ciifton-street, Cardiff, and the Roath police were communicated with. Tho rilei was taken to the spot by Inspector Cox and other officers, but the building was soon in a mass of flames. The heat was so intense that the firemen had great difficulty in bringing their hose to bear, and as it became evident vhat the shop could not be saved thoir efforts were, more particularly directed to the prevention of the spread of the fire, a messenger having been sent for the town fire engine in the meantime. The fire escape was placed against Miss Allwood's con- fectionery shop, which adjoins on the northern side, and water was thrown on to the roof of this establishment, aiong which the flames were now running. Police-Sergeant Damm had his hands severely blistered, and the heat also had tho effect of cracking plate glass windows io two shops on the opposite side of the street. At 3.10 o'clock a.m. the steam fire engine came up, with Mr. Hemingway in command,and water was vigorously thrown on to the burning premises, and at 5.40 a.m. the fire was practically extinguished. The shop where the fire originated comprised a ground floor with one storey above. fhe whole of the building, together with the stock, which is said to have been extensive, was destroyed, and the upper portion of Miss Allwood's premises was also destroyed, as well as some of the bedding which was in the bed- room. The roof of the third house, which is in- habited by a Mr. Hawkbridge, was also damaged. During the progress of the fire goods werd remove! from the two adjoining houses (Nos. 23 and 92), but were afterwards taken back. The origin of the occurrence is not known. It appears that the Me-srs. Lloyd Bros.'stock was insured in the Lanca- shire Fire Office, and that each of the three houses were insured in the Law Fire Office. But no in- surance existed in respect Of the stock at No. 23 Clifton-street, which has suffered to some extent from the action of fire and water.
