A fire broke out shortly before 2 pm. today in a house owned and occupied by Mrs Miller, a dressmaker, in George street, Port Chalmers. There being only a wooden partition, the flames soon spread to the next building, owned by Mr D. Law and occupied by Mr D. S. Jolly, of the Crown Printing Office. The Fire Brigade, under Captain Little, were promptly on the spot, and although a_ Btrong wind was blowing succeeded in confining the fire to the two buildings mentioned. The printing office was completely gutted, but the Red Store, owned by Mr James Joyce, on tho other side of Mr Miller's, was only slightly damaged. Mrs Miller was insured for LBO in the Northern Office, Mr Law (building only) for L2OO in the Equitable Office; while Mr Jolly's stock and plant was insured for L3OO in the same office.
