Another in Christchurch. —The bakehouse and stables belonging to Mr Williams’ establishment in Tuam street west were burned down shortly after three o’clock this morning (says the Lyttelton Times). There were three horses in the stables, two of which were got out, but the other refusing to move was burned to death. The fire was confined to the one building, and the brigade, had little more to do than play on the embers. The Extinguisher was stationed at the river, the Deluge not being used. The buildings were uninsured ; loss not known. jfoRE Stack Burning. —Another stack fire occurred at Oamaru yesterday morning, on the farm of Messrs Jessop and Elder. The stack was uninsured. A threshing machine was also burnt, which, was insured for L2OO. At Neison. — A fire broke out in a fourroomed cottage at Washington Valley, Nelson, on Wednesday night. The occupier, Mr Fall, was alone in the house, with one child, and experienced some difficulty in escaping. The furniture was insured in the Norwich Union for LIOO, but Fall estimates his loss at L3O beyond that amount.
