Partial Text

A loss of $200 was reported at the Dr. E. H. McCleery wolf park midway between Kane and Mt. Jewett on the Roosevelt highway, when the floor around an open fireplace in the tea room caught fire last night. [...] The call from the wolf park was received by the fire chief at 10:30 o'clock last night. The Rescue pumper made the run in a few minutes time and the firemen soon had the blaze under control. The blaze was believed to have started from live embers, which showered on the floor around the fireplace.
