The VOLUME XXXV Fire Guts Rube Clark Home Tuesl Fire of undetermined origin partially destroyed the home of Mr. and Mrs. Rulbe Clark, locat- ed in south Beadh, next door to line new brick home of the Bob Helbl'invg tamily. Mas. Hellbling heard a noise like an explosion in the alternoon, and looking out the window saw dark smoke coming trom- the roar of the Clark hlouISe. Beam volunteer firemen hur— ried to thescene, but only a few of them, wearing masks, could enter the burningstructure, due to the. dense, choking smoke. They found the kitchen was a mack, charred _mess, everything in it being completely ruined by the fierceneess of the blaze. A new model electric range was almost unrecognizable as such, and cupboard doors Were burn-, ed to jagged fragments, the cell ing was burned away, and only .3 portion Off the structural tim- bers remained. The owner, Rube Clark, was at work at the Beach courthouse at the time of the explosion and fire, and his wife was in Wash- ;nglton, D. C., where she had been called 2 weeks previously by the death of her daughter's hudband. Mrs. Daisy Burlums,‘ who has an apartment on the second floor, was also out, visit~ mg at the home or: her daugh— 181’, Mrs. Randal Thompson. The tire spread to other rooms surrounding the kitchen, but was brought under conltrol before It could do too much damage. The awoke and intense heat, however, broke mirrors and win— dows and blister-ed paint and varnish in all the other rooms at the home also, melting cur- tains and ruining thefinidh on immune, Walls and woodwork, and die water the fire caused other damage to the building and its contents. Bead: firemen kept a vigil throughout the evening, until the Windows could be boarded up, other the house cooled down enough so that they were rea- sonably sure the' fire would not break out again. Mr. Clark was deluged with otters of hospitality that night, accepting that of his old friends, Mr. and Mrs. Guy Curl. It is said the damage by the fire was only pmttiafl'ly' coVered by insur- acme. ___.._._...
