THEATER FIRE PANIC AVERTED.

Toledo, Ohio, Jan. 20. -- A panic was narrowly averted in the Arcade and Empire theaters Tuesday night when two store buildings in the same block burned. The excited people rushed madly for the exits, but were calmed by attendants, and all escaped uninjured. The fire, which burned the building of the BROWN, EAGER & HULL Book Company and the HUDSON Dry Goods Company, did $250,000 damage.
