Delaney's wagon shed was $250. div { text-indent: 20px; margin-top: 5px; text-align: justify; } Newspaper Article: EAGLE IRON WORKS FIRE ----- Patterns Amounting to Probably $50,000 Destroyed At 3:45 p.m. Wednesday, fire was discovered on the second story of the pattern shop of the Eagle Iron Works on South Street, and although the employees of the works in a remarkably short time had several streams playing on the flames, they continued to spread. The foundry whistle sounded the fire alarm followed by the alarm at the Liberty Hose house, which brought out the fire department, but owing to a stiff southeast wind prevailing at the time, and the headway which the fire had already gained, it was evident that the building was doomed and the efforts of the firemen were directed toward saving the surrounding buildings - the foundry and machine shop on the east, the Lykens Knitting and Manufacturing Company's plant on the south, and the lumber shed of J.I Delaney and the Lykens Mercantile Company's property on the west. Two wagon loads of employees at Short Mountain Colliery, supplied with hose and fire extinguishers, were hurried to the scene and rendered valuable assistance. Superintendant Auman, Outside Foreman Finton, and Assistant Inside Foreman MaMahon were also present and did valuable work.Sparks from the burning building set the roofs of several houses in the vicinity on fire but they were promptly extinguished by bucket brigades who were on the lookout. The entire second floor of the pattern shop with its contents, an accumulation of patterns during the past 65 years and representing a cost from $40,000 to $50,000 was destroyed. Many of these patterns were for mine machinery will be hard to replace. The cause of the fire is attributed to a spark from the cupola of the foundry falling on the roof. The foundry is owned and operated by Joseph Duncan.The lumber shed of J.I. Delaney adjoining the pattern shop on the west was damaged to the extent of about $500.Great credit is due our firemen for confining the fire to the pattern shop.
