1909 - Fire

News
LIVERMORE FALLS, Me., Aug. 28 - Damage estimated at $75,000 was done to-day by a fire which consumed an immense quantity of spruce owned by the International Paper Company and piled along the Androscoggin River at Jay Bridge. The fire is believed to be of incendiary origin. The mill, which is situated on the opposite side of the river was in no danger, owing to a favorable wind.

Nothing is known here about the insurance, the policies being kept in the New York offices. The wood was intended for use in the manufacture of paper.
