DESTRUCTIVE FIRE AT
The New Store of L. Hill
At one o’clock a.m. Thursday, a disastrous fire broke out in Dyersville, in this county. The fire was discovered in the store of L. Hill. A portion of the stock was saved, but the building was entirely destroyed. The fine stock of furniture stored in the second story was destroyed. The store was a new and fine one, and considered an ornament to the town, and Mr. Hill’s loss will be heavy – We learned that the building was insured in the Winneshiek Company, of Freeport, Ill., and the stock of goods in the House, of New York. The origin of the fire is supposed to have been in as defective flue.
