Two Fires Ray City

     Ray City suffered loss by two fires Tuesday night, one directly after the other.  First Mr. J.M. Tyler’s garage, back of his residence, burned down and his car with it.  About the time they were through working on this fire, Altman’s warehouse, 150 yards distant, by the railroad, was discovered on fire, and it burned down.
      The warehouse was quite a large building built by the Miller Hardware & Furniture Co. and used by that firm as a warehouse for a time but afterwards sold to Altman Bros. who have used it for a fertilizer warehouse the past two seasons.  They carried some insurance.
