This Day In Norwood History-June 8

BLAZE IN NORWOOD BARN BLAMED ON BUSY FIREBUG

NORWOOD, June 8-Again tonight, for the seventh time in two months, the hand of the mysterious fire-bug fell upon a vacant barn in this town, causing a fire that destroyed the two-story barn of Edward Talbot, off Neponset st.

Firemen, after a run of more than a mile, saved the farmhouse, now occupied by the constructors of the nearby Norwood Airport, but a small shed in the rear was burned down. The barn was worth about $3000.

The trail of the fire-bug, who prays upon barns, has Included property on the estate of William Cameron Forbes. Last Friday night, Mrs E. W. White, just over the line in Westwood, lost her barn in an incendiary fire. This fire also threatened the Unitarian Church and the home of Dr James Mulvehill.
