The main part of Wooster University has burned down, picture included. The entire main building of the University of Wooster was destroyed by fire early Wednesday morning and the students and faculty are at present without a college home. As nearly as can be ascertained, the building caught fire about 2:45am from an explosion in the chemical labatory. The fire was first seen by DM Gill, who, with his wife, lived in the north wing of the university. Mr. Gill heard the explosion and jumped up to look in the window towards the direction where it came. He saw in the lower part of the west wing a small creeping flame that was lighting up everything in the vicinity. He immediately thought of the boiler and hurried to it but found that the fire was confined to the chemistry lab. Mr. Gill rushed to telephone the alarm. The fire department arrived at 3:05am but owning to low pressure, were unable to throw water. The steam engine was pressed into service and first effective water at 3:45am. The fire quickly spread and soon the entire west wing was aflame. The part that was formerly the old Main building was soon caught and the east wing was last to take fire. Within one hour after the first explosion was heard, the noble structure was a mass of ruin. While the fire was yet in progress, a facilty meeting was held in the basement of the Frick library and a mass meeting called for 10am, Wednesday morning. The loss of the building was 250000 estimated and records and equipment 50000, total 300000, insurance only for 60000. Plans are already under foot as we go to press to put them in a better structure than ever.

Smoke caused damage from a defective furnace which caused alarm of fire Sunday morning. It was noticed that D Nice store was filled with smoke. It was at first thought it might be caused by the furnace. Those who saw the smoke looked in the window west side of the room and observed that smoke was much heavier and dense than on the other side. A message was dispatched to Mr. Nice and a call to department. Mr. Nice said he believed that smoke was caused by the furnace but quickly opened the doors and with three of the firemen carrying extinguishers, made their way to the basement. The great room was so filled of heavy gas smoke, it was almost impossible to breath. It was soon discovered that the furnace was the cause of trouble and doors and windows were opened quickly to clear the room of smoke which rolled forth in great clouds. When Mr. Nice had his stock insured against fire and water, he was understanding that he cannot recover when his goods are destroyed by smoke only.
