"Shortly after two o'clock on Wednesday morning a fire of considerable magnitude, and equally alarming in its nature, occurred at the premises belonging to Mr. T. Gibson, coach spring and axle manufacturer, 8 and 9, Weaman Street. The fire was first discovered by Police Constable Lovell, who saw flames shooting through the roofing of the building, and at once raised an alarm. That portion of the premises which was on fire is at the very rear of Mr. Gibson's works, and is approached by a wide passage, capable of admitting a horse and cart, and about 120 feet in length. It formed part of a stack of shopping which opens into a yard almost square in shape, and was occupied by four persons who rented it under Mr. Gibson. The shopping facing the street was two stories in height, and was about 50 feet by 15. It was occupied Mr. Newton, wood turner, on the ground floor, while the upper story was rented by Mr. Benjamin Spittle, gun implement maker. The left wing was occupied by Mr. Stokes, French polisher. The engines of the Amalgamated Fire Brigade were soon in attendance, and on their arrival the shopping in the occupation of Messrs. Spittle and Newton was one mass of flame. The air around was illuminated to a great distance, and the heat arising from the building was felt at a considerable distance from the place. The firemen speedily found the water-plugs, and were fortunate in having a good supply of water. One of the stand-pipes was brought into action from the front, while another was used with great effect from the back of the premises in Whittall Street. It was absolutely useless to attempt, or even to think, of saving any portion of the shopping engaged by Messrs. Spittle and Newton, so the firemen directed their efforts towards keeping the conflagration from extending to the surrounding buildings. The force of water being strong, the counteraction to the devastating element was highly successful, and the fire was prevented from spreading to the front part as well as the right wing of the pile of shopping. The firemen continued playing with indomitable perseverance for about three hours, till at length, about half-past five o'clock, the fire was quite extinguished. The shopping facing the street was burned to the ground with the exception of one or two charred remains of beams, the appearance of which indicates the fierceness of the conflagration when at its zenith. A crowd of people assembled, and for some time considerable excitement prevailed in the neighbourhood. Chief Superintendent Glossop, with Superintendent Sheppard and a body of police, were in attendance, and rendered great assistance in keeping the place clear. The estimated damage to Mr. Spittle's property, consisting of a lot of valuable machinery, is £500.; Mr. Newton's loss is stated to be something like £100.; and the injury to Mr. Stokes's tools and stock will be very considerable. The whole is said to uninsured. The damage to the building is covered by insurance in the Liverpool and London insurance offices. The cause of the fire, it is not positively known, but it is thought that it originated from the overheating of the sawdust in the lower shopping occupied by Mr. Newton, arising from the boiler which was situated near to it."
