Special to The Inquirer.
MT. HOLLY, N. J., Dec. 19.---The entire town of Vincentown was threatened with destruction by fire to-night, when a blaze was discovered in the hotel stables of J. F. Walsh, and as it was the buildings wherein the fire started were destroyed, involving a loss of about $2500. The barns of Samuel Cole and Wellington Wright, adjoining Walsh's were damaged to some extent, but not entirely destroyed. No houses were burned.
Fearing the town would be destroyed, assistance was asked from Mount Holly, but the Vincentown fire department were successful in getting the blaze under control before the boys from the country seat arrived.
