Carbondale, CO Livery Stable Fire, Feb 1893

DESTRUCTIVE FIRE AT CARBONDALE

Fire at Carbondale.

Carbondale, Feb 23.--[Special]-- The livery stable of Tucker & Wecklifle at this place was entirely destroyed by fire at noon today. Only the horses were saved. Everything else, including the firm’s books, is a total loss. No insurance. It is supposed the fire caught from the office stove and as the employes were at dinner the flames had got beyond control before being discovered. Luckily there was no wind or the main portion of the town might have been swept away. The loss is roughly estimated at $1200.
