DISASTEROUS FIRE-IN AN OIL MANUFACTORY AT COWLAI RS, - DAMAGE ESTIMATED AT £10,000
Late last evening a most alarming and disastrous fire broke out in a still, lard, tallow, and sperm oil manufactory at Cowlairs, belonging to Mr Robert Hutchison, by which a great portion of the building was destroyed and an immense quantity of the stock stored in the premises were consumed. The works, which are situated in the northern district of Cowlairs, covering an area of fully an acre and a half. The building in which the fire originated consisted of four storeys, and measured 140 by 50 feet . This building was used for pressing and filtering purposes,.and was stored with a large quantity of lard, tallow, and oil. These premises were surrounded by other buildings, also containing large supplies of oil.
To the west of the house in which the fire occurred there is a two-storey building,a portion ofwhichisfittedupao an engine, fir house and a boiler house, anol the remainder as fel a pan-room or store, which also contained oil of and tallow,. and to which the fire ultimately extended. The fire was first observed shortly before ten o'clock,. and was at that time confined to the northern portion of the building. The alarm was immnediately raised, and the on people connected with the work, most of whom live in the immediate, neighbourhood, were communicated with, but though they arrived shortly afterwards, the flames, which,owing to the imflammable nature of the material contained in the premises, extended with. alarming rapidity, had reached well nigh to the centre of the building. Some delay , was caused in sending information of the occurrence to the fire station in Glasgow, as a consequence of the telegraph wire. which passed over the works being burned.
