The inmates were all in bed when the outbreak was discovered. They numbered seven—Mr. and Mrs. Reeves and three children, Mr. Edward Harris, au<i a servant. Mr. Reeves, hearing the breaking of glass, thought burglars were about. He got up awl opened his bedroom door, when he was met by a volume of smoke, which nearly choked him. Teliing his wife to dress, he went and called Mr. Harris and the servant, and then set about rescuing the caildren. Amid much excitement he got them all out of the house, but the servant was carried out in an unconscious state. Everything was burnt- furniture, clothing, and jewellery.
