MOUNTAIN HOTEL, NEAR EASTON, PA., DESTROYED BY FIRE.
Easton, Pa., July 11. -- Paxinosa Inn, an imposing structure on the summit of Weygadt mountain, three miles north of the centre of this city, was destroyed by fire. The loss is $150,000; insurance, $20,000. None of the guests or help was injured, but some lost their clothing and jewelry. The fire started from an overheated flue in the laundry, east of the inn, and leaped to the big structure. An hour later the building was in ruins, so rapidly did the flames spread.
The inn was 40 by 340 feet, and was four stories high. It was buildt entirely of wood, and there was no way of checking the flames, once they spread from the laundry. A. B. HELLINGS and his sister, MRS. PIGGOTT, of Philadelphia, who conducted the business, lost their entire personal effects while they were saving those of the guests.
