More about Newbern fire

A faulty flue was believed to be the cause of the Newbern fire.
The newspaper reported that the alarm was given at 6:05 p.m. and that the Pulaski Fire Company arrived at 6:28 p.m.
Nearly every well and cistern and other place containing water was pumped dry, but it was not nearly enough to contain the leaping flames.
The area destroyed by flames covered a road frontage of about 400 feet, and a large crowd gathered in from all directions.
The firefighters did an excellent job of confining the fire to the area it covered.
Many people whose homes burned were advanced in age, and it was good to read that the homes of neighbors were thrown open to the homeless.
After leaving her burning home, one lady discovered that she had dropped some money, and she ran back in.
As she came back out, the roof began to fall, and she was saved by the quick action of a Pulaski fireman.

A small child, Isaac Duncan, is said to have been rescued from his home by (an unidentified) man.
Two large hogs were burned to death because, after being released from their pen, they ran back into the fire.
Among the buildings destroyed was one that covered the town reservoir.
The old brick structure still stands as a historical landmark.
Public water now runs into the village, complete with fire hydrants.
Village citizens breathe more easily now, with a good water supply and an excellent volunteer fire department.
The Newbern Fire Department takes part in all of the special events that take place in the village.
At Christmas time, the firemen help get the place ready for the annual Christmas parade.
And each year at the Newbern Fall Festival of Arts and Crafts, they handle the large amount of traffic moving through, as well as directing vehicles to the various parking lots for safe parking.
Also, the fire department has a booth in the festival, where for many years the firemen have vended out country ham sandwiches.
Henry Farris was for many years the Newbern Fire Chief, while also serving as a member of the Pulaski County Board of Supervisors and as manager of the annual Pulaski County Fair.
The present chief of the fire department is Miller Tyree Farris, who served for many years as a fireman before being named chief. Miller is a dedicated community-minded public servant.
Lloyd Mathews is a retired land surveyor and a historian who lives in Pulaski.
