Gasoline Caused Fire
Hampton, Jan. 6 About 9:30 yesterday the restaurant run by J. F. Kearney was nearly destroyed by fire. The cause was a gasoline stove which leaked the gasoline. This became ignited and caused the tank to explode. The flames spread very rapidly and but for the prompt work of the fireman the entire building would have been destroyed. Loss is yet unknown.
