GREENWICH'S FIRE ENGINE.

The New York Times
May 27, 1900


Summer Residents Contribute to Purchase a New One.

Special to The New York Times.

GREENWICH, Conn., May 26.—The many New York business men who have summer residences in Greenwich and Bellehaven are anxious that the Greenwich Fire Department shall be equipped with a steam fire engine and have donated $3,000 to that end.  There are two volunteer companies here equipped with hook, ladder, and hose, and they depend upon water pressure only.  At the fire two weeks ago, when $200,000 damage was done, it was seen that should any of the large buildings get afire a steamer would be necessary.

Dr. L. P. Jones has secured many subscriptions, one of $1,000 from George E. Nichols of Brooklyn.  Others who have swelled the funds are W. R. H. Martin, Charles T. Wills, Thomas S. Holmes, Robert M. Bruce, Clarence M. Hyde, Dr. Frederick Hyde, and Mrs. Elizabeth Anderson.  It is expected that $3,000 more will be raised in a few weeks.
