Middletown, RI Sea View Hotel Firfe, Jan 1928
There was a serious fire at Atlantic Beach just over the line in Middletown from the Newport Beach at 3 o'clock last Sunday morning. The Sea View Hotel had been closed for about three months, but, in some way a fire started during Saturday night. The Middletown fire apparatus was called about 3 o'clock and upon arriving found the whole of the inside of the hotel afire. The firemen did good work in saving the surrounding buildings and the outside of the hotel but the entire inside of the hotel was burned out.
