ted that a disastrous fire at
Likuni destroyed the carpenter's shop, the blacksmith shop and a large shed in which were stored the whole Vicariate's reserve stocks.
" Doors, windows. furniture, timber and boards (which were to be used for the construction and furnishing of a convent for the native nuns, a hospital and a girls' school), more than 30 ions of provisions for the nuns, the pupils, the patients and the workmen, the tools and machinery in the carpenter's shop and the blacksmith shop were all destroyed in no time. A whirlwind blew sparks from a brick-kiln to a pile of straw and scattered the blazing straw.
