Weymouth, MA Fire, Sept 1898
Big Fire in Weymouth, Mass.
Weymouth, Mass., Sept. 29.--The factory buildings of the Bradley Fertilizer works in North Weymouth were burned shortly before 11 o'clock last night, causing a loss of about $200,000 to the buildings and stock. The loss is practically covered by insurance. The plant was chiefly under one roof and covered much ground, so that when the fire broke out it spread to all parts, making it impossible to save anything. The cause of the fire is believed to be spontaneous combustion, as the watchman patrolled the building only a few minutes before the fire was discovered.
