New York, NY Wagon Factory and Wheelwright Shop Fire, Sept 1876

Birth, Marriage & Death Records

At 9 o'clock last night a fire broke out in the two frame buildings No. 339 East Forty-eighth street, owned by Unlandherm & Brother, and occupied by them as a wagon factory and wheelwright shop. Owing to the combustible nature of the building and contents the flames spread very rapidly, and for a time threatened the surrounding tenement houses, but the firemen arrived promptly and soon succeeded in extinguishing the flames. The loss of Unlandherm and Brother is estimated at $2,000; insured for $6,000. The fire extended to the one-story frame stable of Daniel Loonie, which was damaged to the extent of $200. The three-story frame building, No. 341, occupied by Hugh Campbell, a junk dealer, was damaged to the extent of $500.
