Providence, RI Paper Co Building Fire, Oct 1852

Destructive Fire at Providence.

Providence, Saturday, Oct. 23. A fire broke out, about 10 o'clock this forenoon, in the three-story brick building, No. 53 Canal-street, in this city, belonging to A. B. Dike, and occupied by B. R. Almy & Co., dealers in paper, &c. Their loss must be at least $10,000, (and no insurance,) the whole of their stock being consumed. The building was insured at the Atlantic Office for $1,200, which will probably cover the loss.
