Fire at the Craig Schools. Prompt Action of the Police. Shortly after ten o'clock on Thursday night, a fire broke out in one of the class-rooms of the Gralg Board Schools. P.O. Thomas, who was in the vicinity, promptly arrived upon the scene, immediately followed by P.C. Griffiths, who with admirable promptitude, at once ob- tained a few buckets of water from the neigbr bourhood, and soon overcame the flames. Messra J McGregor and Mr John Harris, hearing the alarm, soon obtained a hose from Mr D. Oliver Lewis, master of the workhouse, and established a connectioa with the fire, hydrant, but in this short interval the fire "had been extinguished. A crowd soon gathered around the schools, and in a few minutes several members of the Pontypridd Fire Brigade, headed by Lieutenant Tom Cule, appeared on the scene, out fortunately their services were not required. It appears that an evening con- tinuation class was to have been held in this class room on Thursday evening, and conse- quently the fires of the heating apparatus, the boilers of which were situated underneath, were not extinguished. By some means or another tie pipes became overheated, and ogmtea tne woodwork af t £ e wainscotting. Owing to the absences of air the flames did not burst out,and the police found no great difficulty in extinguish- ing the fire. A large quantity of pap»r,wn'a\ was near, caugEfc fire, but was promptly put out- Mr D. Milton Jones, clerk of the School Board, was soon in attendance, and was gratified to find the damage was not extensive.
