Greenwich, CT Edwood Inn Casino Fire, Mar 1922

CASINO IN GREENWICH BURNS

But Firemen Save the Edgewood Inn, Threatened by the Flames.

Special to The New York Times.

GREENWICH, Conn., March 18.--The large casino of the Edgewood Inn, owned by Miss Louise Edward and Miss Mary Dillan, was completely destroyed by fire this afternoon.

A grass fire was discovered in the vacant lot a short distance from the building, and Superintendent Henry Conners of the inn and grounds with other employes{sis} attempted to extinguish the blaze with brooms, but a high wind blew the burning leaves against the building, which was soon enveloped in flames. The fire companies with several lines of hose saved a Summer house, as well as the hotel and other houses in the vicinity.
