1910 - WINDSOR LOCKS. Tobacco Shed and Contents Burn.
A tobacco shed and a small barn close by belonging to the estate of P. J. McMahon on Spring street were burned to the ground Thursday morning. In the barn was a quantity of tobacco and some laths, all of, which were consumed. The cause of the fire is unknown. Nobody, had been a the barn during the day and combustion is suspected. Henry McMahon had three acres of tobacco bundled up ready for sorting upon which he had $800 insurance. James Murphy and Dr. J. A. Coogan had small lots of tobacco hanging, but it was not insured. The barns were worth about $1000 and were partly insured.
