FIRE CAUSKD BY DOG. 1 Two remarkable stories of dogs are related in connection with recent outbreaks of fire. In the first incident the animal met a painful death. A Kingstown (Co. Dublin) gardener had washed his dog with paraffin, and as it basked before the fire a spark set its coat alight. The poor creature fled in terror to a store room, where it ignited a quantity of inflammable matter. In a few moments the fire rot beyond control, and threatened the lives of three other families in the house. Before the fire brigade arrived the place was gutted, and though none of the (ecu- pants were injured, very little furniture was saved. The second story concerns a fire at Norman- ton, where John Henry Adams, the caretaker of the town club, with his wife and child, would have been suffocated early on Tuesday morning but for the alarm given by the howling of their j pet dog in a burning store room. M Attracted by the dog, a police officer broke 1 open three locked doors and went through th8 flames to rescue the three human occupants, the dog being found half dead endeavouring to get air at the partially raised window.
