Lexington, KY Gibson House Fire, Mar 1902
FIRE AT COLONEL GIBSON'S.
The residence of Colonel Hart Gibson on the Harrodsburg pike was saved from burning by quick work on the part of the fire department early yesterday morning.
The roof was on fire when the chemical engine started, and upon arrival a hole had burnt in the roof. The flames were extinguished before much damage had been done. It is believed that the fire started from a flue.
THANKS TO FIREMEN.
Our household desires to return thanks to the fire department for its ready response to the fire call Sunday morning. The admirable discipline and intelligent action of the department enabled it to reach the ground and extinguish the fire in less than ten minutes after the call. The "Chemical" is worth its weight in gold.
