Set Fire to the Comac Woods

New York, 1895

More than forty acres of woodland at Comac was destroyed by fire Friday. The fire is believed to have been started by Bob Armstrong, a desperate character, who has boasted that he would not leave a building standing in Comac. Officers are searching for him.
