1900 - Fires at Northampton and Amherst.

The engine-house number was struck on the fire alarm bell at Northampton at 1 o'clock yesterday because of a forest fire near Park hill. Several acres were burned ever near H. J. Searle's house and the Westhampton road, and the smoke rolled up dense volumes at noon. Chief Chase and about a dozen men drove to the fire and aided in getting it under control. Forest fires were raging in the woods along the Belchertown road in Amherst yesterday.
