    QUINCY GIVEN BAD FIRE SCARE -- Cashman's Big Storehouse on Furnace Avenue Threatened When His Hay Sheds are Burned. Loss is Estimated at $2,000- A two-alarm fire threatened the Cashman storage houses and big barn off Cross street, near the Granite Branch of the New Haven railroad last night. The fire started in that part of the sheds used for the storage of hay. In the building were 20 tons of hay. A few minutes after the fire was discovered the flames were shooting upwards for 20 feet. The first alarm came from box 432 at 10:45 and 10 minutes later Chief Mead ordered a second alarm sounded. This was done to get pumping engines and more men, for Chief Mead realized that if the fire broke through the hay sheds and got into the next shed beyond there were 20,000 bags of charcoal which would have made a blaring fire. The West Quincy companies were at the first a few minutes after the alarm sounded, but the pressure from the hydrant streams was not powerful enough to cope with the burning flames. One company had come from the central station on the first alarm and the second alarm brought two more companies from that station also Engine 2 from Quincy Point, Auto Combination 2 of Wollaston and Auto Ladder 2 from Wollaston. Within a few minutes after the pumping engines got to work the flames were beaten down and the firemen were able to get inside the shed where the hay was stored. It was almost unbearably hot in there but the firemen carried lines with them and soon had the fire under control, so that all danger of the flames spreading to the adjacent buildings was gone by. The 20 tons of baled hay were pitched out into the barn yard by the firemen. In an adjoining big barn were eight horses but they were gotten out soon after the fire was discovered and at no time were they in danger. Chief Mead and his men did a good piece of work in confining the flames to the building in which it started. The sounding of the second alarm sent hundreds of automobiles in the direction of West Quincy and thousands of people in West Quincy walked to the fire. The buildings were erected several years ago by the late John Cashman. At the present time they are owned by his nephew, Edward Cashman. Mr. Cashman said he thought the damage to the buildings by fire would not go over $1500 or $2000. All of the 20 tons of hay were ruined either by fire, smoke or water. It was stated that the hay was $32 a ton, which would bring the loss on the contents of the shed up $640. After the sounding of the second alarm, the police auto patrol, equipped with pulmotors and search lights was sent to the scene of the fire by Capt, E.H. Bishop, in charge of the police headquarters at the time. Within minutes after the sounding of the second alarm all sorts of wild rumors were being circulated in City square, which caused a big exodus towards West Quincy of autos and street cars. The all-out signal was sounded at 12:20 this morning. (Source detail: Quincy Patriot - Quincy Daily Ledger, 3 Sep 1921)
