Ogdensburg, N. Y., Jan. 29. -- Rensselaer Falls, about thirteen miles from here, was in danger of being destroyed this morning by a fire that started in Creighton Hall. Aid was asked from Ogdensburg, and the department was all ready to board the cars when another message announced that the flames were under control.
Creighton's Hall was occupied by the Opera House, a roller skating rink, banquet hall, boat works, automobile garage, blacksmith's shop, and Justice of the Peace's office. Four automobiles were destroyed. The Congregational Church and the parsonage adjoining were badly damaged. The flames were fought by a bucket brigade.
