New York, NY Washington Street Fire, Jan 1893

Hurt by Falling Walls.

NEW YORK, Jan. 21.----Nine firemen had a narrow escape from instant death at a destructive fire early Saturday morning at 542, 544, and 546 Washington street. As it was they were painfully injured, the entire western wall of the big building, a four-story store house, suddenly falling out and pining them beneath the debris. Three are likely to die. Their names are Joseph Coyle, George Reynolds, and William Robertson.
