The five-roomed wooden dwelling of Mr Charles Anderson, at the Valley, was burnt down on Saturday morning. The cause of the fire is believed to have been a defect in the kitchen range. The scouring shed, drying shed, and contents were saved. The Equitable had a risk on the property for LI,OOO, of which L 750 was reinsured. The brigade were called out yesterday afternoon to an alarm of fire in the Maori road, and found that an outhouse rented by Mr R. Cook had been slightly damaged by hot ashes being thrown among the coals. It has been decided to hold an inquiry into the fire at Mrs Walker’s millinery shop at Wellington.
