Little Auto Fire Causes a Big Stir.
The New York Times

An automobile owned by Dr. J. Richard Kevin, surgeon of the Twenty-third Regiment, Brooklyn, took fire yesterday while it was standing in Gates Avenue, near Bedford, from defective insulation.  The physician jumped out of the machine to get some sand to smother the blaze.  Meantime someone turned in an alarm.  Three engine companies and a hook and ladder company responded.  As Bedford Avenue is the dividing line between two precincts, the reserves from the Gates and Classon Avenue precincts also hurried there in two patrol wagons.  The fire was put out with a hand extinguisher, the damage being slight.
