Ponca City Fire

 

Ponca City had her first serious fire Wednesday morning of this week. From reports from different sources we learn that the fire originated in M. J. Rogers meat market, at about 4 o’clock in the morning and soon spread to the adjoining buildings. The entire block was destroyed, and it took hard fighting to save the adjacent blocks, and the block across the street on the south. The loss is estimated at from $50,000 to $100,000, and the property was only fairly well insured. The Arkansas City Traveler prints the following as the list of buildings burned: L. C. Adams general store; Lee Herman, saloon; M. J. Rogers, meat market; Souligny & Brodboil, real estate; Seybold Bros. boots and shoes; N. T. Hampton, notion store; Saddle Rock Café; Fowler & Gott, hardware; F. W. Gray, grocery and general stock; Miss Taylor, milliner; Cragin’s grocery store; Dunham Bros. jewelry; R. E. Morrison, drug store and W. D. McKenzie, saloon. It is a severe blow to our neighboring city, and we heartily sympathize with them in their misfortune, but we believe, that with their accustomed energy, they will rebuild and be all the more substantial for the purging.
