Conflagration at Park Col- liery, Pantyftynnon. The lamp station of the Park Colliery, Pantyffynnon, together with about 300 lamps, were completely destroyed by fire on Monday night. The fire was discovered by an em- ployee of the colliery, Mr. Michael, of LIan-1 debie, at about 10.30 p.m. Notification was sent to the Amman ford Fire Brigade, which arrived quickly on the scene, accompanied by a willing band of helpers. However, it was discovered that the hose pipes could not be connected with the hydrant, as it was situated a considerable distance away, and conse- quently the brigade were greatly handicapped in their efforts to extinguish the fire. The conflagration was now a blazing mass, and those present had no other means at their dis- posal but to extinguish-the fire by means ot water which was carried in buckets by a large r.umber of ready helpers. P.S. Britten and P. C. Edwa"rds rendered valuable service in assisting to arrest the conflagration. At the time of the outbreak the night workers had descended the mine, and their lamps were therefore not amongst those destroyed. After energetic efforts the fire was got under at about 11.30. The miners were unable to work on Tuesday.
