Fire at Brooklyn Hills.

New York, 1895

Shortly after midnight Sunday fire broke out in the large three story building of H. W. Lange, corner of Union Place and the Jamaica road, Brooklyn Hills. The fire was discovered on the second floor, which was unoccupied. Lange occupies the lower floor for a grocery, and a family resided on the top floor. The firemen, after an hour's hard work, extinguished the flames. The damage to the building by fire and stock in the store will not fall short of $1,000.

—The Long Island Farmer, Jamaica, NY, June 28, 1895, p. 8.
