Thursday February 11, 1904 Forty Millions Dollars and

A Score of Fatalities

Baltimore, Md., Feb. 8. – The fire which broke out a few minutes before 11 o’clock yesterday morning in the wholesale dry goods house of John E. Hurst & Co., has raged with unrestrained fury continuously ever since, and at midnight was still unchecked, but is still steadily consuming its way eastward on Baltimore street, after having destroyed almost all of the large stores and warehouses in the wholesale district around Hopkins Place and all the buildings on both sides of Baltimore street, from Charles and Baltimore to Charles and Lexington, and on Fayette street from Charles to Homday (?), including a total of about twenty blocks of the most modern and substantial buildings in Baltimore, involving a loss which can not now be estimated, but which has certainly already reached thirty or forty millions of dollars.

Ever since about 6 o’clock, when darkness came, the fire department, although aided by engines from Washington, Philadelphia, Wilmington and the surrounding suburbs, has been utterly powerless to make any effective resistance to the consuming element, though for hours as many as 100 streams of water were thrown into the flames. Indeed, so terrific has been the heat ever since the fire started, and so dense and suffocating the volume of flying sparks and burning cinders, that it was difficult for the firemen to stand long within fighting distance of the flames, while early in the afternoon several trucks and engines were hopelessly disabled by timbers.

A terrible wind is raging and the fire department, reinforced by corps from Philadelphia, Washington, New York and other points, is a pigmy battling with a giant. The city is under martial law and the authorities are fighting the conflagration with dynamite. Tons of dynamite are being used and rows of buildings are being blown up in the path of the flames.
