FIRES AT BARRY DOCKS. While on duty at an early hour on Saturday morning last, P. C. Poolman saw smoke issuing from the windows of No. 54, Kingsland-crescent, Barry Docks, occupied by Mr George Harvey, a pilot. The constable at once summoned the police staff, and they were promptly in attendance with the hose and reel, and the outbreak, which occurred in one of the bedrooms, was extinguished within en hour. The loss was covered by insurance. Early on Monday morning last a fire broke out in premises occupied by Mr D. Bevan, greengrocer, 28, Holton-road, Barry Docks. The police, with the hose and reel, were quickly on the scene, and succeeded in getting the fire under way before much damage was done. The origin of the fire is unknown. These periodical fires in the Barry district are effectually coped with by the local police staff, with the aid of the manual extinguish- ing appliances, each recurring occasion affording additional proof of the unnecessary purchase by the District Council some time ago of a costly fire engine, which, housed as it is in a. palatial structure which cost over £ 2,000, has never yet been used.
