1923 - WINDS FAN SPARKS, DAMAGING CHIMNEY OF MILFORD HOTEL


1923 - WINDS FAN SPARKS, DAMAGING CHIMNEY OF MILFORD HOTEL

MILFORD, Mar. 19. Fanned by high winds, fire did considerable damage to a chimney on Smith's hotel at Milford Point early tonight, and would probably have resulted more seriously had not the firemen arrived in time to check it.

A still alarm was sent in to Chemical company, No. 3 of Myrtle Beach, which is two miles away, and when the firemen arrived on the scene, the chimney was a mass of flames. After a stubborn fight for a half hour, the blaze was extinguished.

The hotel is operated as a summer resort, and at the present is occupied by M. L. Warner and E. H. Ford.
