1895 - Explosion's Quick Work.

Malden, Mass, Jan. 16.- This city was shaken at midnight by a tremendous explosion at the works of the Malden and Melrose Gaslight company. The large building was completely destroyed. Seven employes(sic) were about the premises when the explosion occurred, but all escaped without serious injury except P. F. Nolan, who was badly burned. In less than a minute the building, which was a brick one, extending along Charles street about 60 feet, was a mass of ruins. The loss will be $30,000 or more.
