Dover, NH Masonic Temple Fire, Apr 1906
STARTS IN THE RUINS OF DOVER MASONIC TEMPLE.
A fire started in the ruins of Masonic Temple in Dover early Wednesday morning and gave the firemen a stubborn fight. Water was poured on the blaze from two lines of hose, but it was more than an hour before the flames were extinguished.
DR. R. G. BLANCHARD, past eminent commander of St. Paul's Commandery, Knights Templar, has recovered his sword from the ruins of the temple. The only damage was a slight discoloration of the blade.
