It was a surprise to see the young people of Colma – no one before realized there were so many nice young girls and boys. Each joined heartily in the fames and dances, following fine piano music and Mrs. C.P. LAMBERT’s concertina which was a band in itself.
It was certainly an occasion long to be remembered and many were the sincere wishes extended to Miss Irene, who is one of Colma’s most interesting young ladies.
Two Business Building Destroyed – Another Badly Damaged – Loss About $14,000
A few minutes after three o’clock Monday morning a brisk fire was discovered in the HEIME market on Mission street, between Knowles and Los Angeles avenues, and it gained headway so rapidly that by the time the volunteer fire company arrived the building was a mass of flames and doomed, so that efforts were exerted to save adjoining property on each side.
The water supply was fairly good but it was discovered that the Theta avenue hydrant would not work and that delayed the fire fighters considerably, so that the fire spread in both directions, consuming in its path the small real-estate office and setting fire to the large PESCARO building while to the north the new GENOCHINO building was also in flames, notwithstanding the heroic efforts that were exerted to keep the fire from spreading in that direction.
The origin of the fire is unknown except that it started in the building that is owned by Emelio SCRAMAGLIA and occupied by Louis HEIM.
The losses were as follows:
E. PESCARO, damage to building about $2,5000; stock about $3,5000. Fully insured.
Dr. F. BUSH, dentist in Pescaro building, total loss of about $1,000. Insurance $500.
Dr. G.L. MARION, physician in Pescaro building, loss about $1,000, no insurance.
Emalio SCRAMAGLIA, building $1,500 Louis HEIM, market fixtures $1,200, insured for $800.
Tony GENOCHINO, the new building on the corner of Los Angeles avenue and Mision, that was to be occupied by J. PANNELLI with a grocery stock as soon as complete, loss about $3,000.
KASSER, real estate office, loss about $150.
