Copyright] [Fee Press Association,] MELBOURNE, September 14, (Received September 14,1880, at X p.m.) The fire which broke out last night has been extinguished. The flames spread with alarming rapidity at tho end of Collins street, which presented a magnificent though unfortunate scene. Allen’s musie shop was partially destroyed, bat Mullen’s book shop was untouched, though considerable loss is entailed by the removal of perishables. The stock of Mr George, who owns a large drapery establishment? which fell a victim to the fire in the early stage, is insured for L 44,000. The other insurances are as yet unknown. The total damage by the fire is roughly estimated at L 200,000. While the fire was raging one or two walls fell, and John M‘Leod, fireman, was killed, and ten others were badly injured, while two are missing, and, it is feared, are buried in the ruins.
