                FIRE IN HANLEY GARAGE DOES DAMAGE ESTIMATED AT 7000 dollars.

Fire, which resulted in damage estimated from 6000 to 7000 dollars, started in the battery room of the Hanley's Canandaigua garage, Edward T. Hanley, proprietor, in Main street south shortly after 9 40 Thursday morning.  The fire when first discovered by Arthur Bird, an employee, was near the ceiling in the battery room and it is thought probable it was caused by defective wiring. The room rapidly filled with smoke, and Bird giving the alarm, Edward McCarthy, another worker sent in a general alarm from box 44. 

Mr. Hanley was in his apartment over the garage when he heard an employee call out that the place was on fire. The apartments quickly filled with smoke and Mr. Hanley, carrying his infant son, and Mrs. Hanley escaped to the street through a thick volume of smoke, where friends took Mrs. Hanley and the child to the home of relatives.

All four of the city fire companies responded promptly and it was forty minutes before the fire was under control and an hour before it was entirely extinguished. Thomas McGregor of Erina Hose Company, was overcome by smoke, but was soon resuscitated when taken out of the building.  The battery room and several adjoining rooms were gutted and a large portion of the second story roofing and flooring was destroyed, including apartments occupied by Mrs. John Cupppins. 

 There were several new Willys Knight and Overland cars stored in the building, all of which were removed without damage, except that one was scorched on the body.  Mr. Hanley states that the loss was fully covered by insurance and says that he will rebuild the damaged section at once. He expressed his appreciation of the manner in which  the fire was handled by the department and police.
