"About twenty minutes past eight o'clock last evening, intelligence was received at the engine stations that a fire had broken out at the shop of Mr. Frost, haberdasher, Smallbrook Street. The flames were extinguished before the arrival of the engines. The fire was confined to the shop window, in which some articles of haberdashery ignited through the breaking of glass which surrounded the gas, leaving it unprotected. A few articles in the window were destroyed, and the damage, which is trifling, is covered by insurance in the Royal Fire Office. When the alarm of fire was given, Mrs. Emma Howes, who occupied a shoe shop next door, ran out in a state of excitement, and then returning into the shop, sat down. It was then perceived that she was in a dying state, and a messenger was despatched for Mr. Sproston, surgeon, of Bristol Street; but his arrival the unfortunate woman had ceased to exist. She had not enjoyed good for some time past, and it is said that her death resulted from fright at the tire. An inquest will be held on the body."
