1897 - New Hampshire Hotel Burned.

Exeter, N. H., July 14. Fire broke out on the roof of the Swampscott House, the largest hotel in this town. Before the fire department could get in effective work the building was destroyed, entailing a loss of $25,000. The high wind which prevailed prevented the local apparatus from doing effective work, and assistance was summoned from Haverhill, Dover and other points. The augmented forces by great effort confined the flames to the hotel. The hotel employees occupied the upper story. They will lose everything. There were a number of guests in the house, but all escaped with their belongings. There was an insurance of $15,000 on the property.
