FIRE DESTROYS WEST END HOME

Charles Fryt's Residence Is Consumed - Firemen Powerless to Save Building.

The residence of Charles Fryt, Thirteenth avenue west and Tenth street, was completely destroyed by fire at about 6 o'clock last evening, which is believed to have started from the exploding of a lamp in the kitchen while the family was visiting at the home of Joe Fryt, his brother, living in an adjoining house. A woodshed standing between the two houses was also burned. A small amount of the furniture was saved.

When fire company No. 2 arrived the building was nearly destroyed and its energies were devoted to saving the houses in the vicinity. The house is some distance from the water mains, and on a street which has not been graded, making it very difficult for the department to get near the place for effectual work.

The total loss on the house and furniture is estimated at about $2,000 and the wood house at $150, both of which are covered by insurance.
