Burslem Church Fire
Fire, which apparently originated in the Christmas crib, caused damage recently to the roof, walls, altar and furnishings, of a chapel of St. Joseph's, Burslem, in which the crib was set up. A coal-carter who, on passing the church, noticed smoke issuing from the Lady Chapel, at once gave the alarm and the local fire brigade promptly attended the outbreak.
