A fire early Thursday morning gutted the two-story building occupied by the ANTHONY Candy Company, at Sioux Falls, S.D., destroyed the entire stock of the company and seriously damaged the PHILLIPS block, adjoining. The PHILLIPS block belongs to ex-Senator PETTIGREW.
The fire started in the basement of the building of the ANTHONY Candy Company, and the fire department was required to fight hard for several hours before the flames were controlled. The ANTHONY Candy Company had a $30,000 stock. The total damage to this and the two buildings will reach fully $40,000. The loss is practically all covered by insurance.
