$21,000 Blaney Fire

BLANEY (AP) – A fierce blaze igniting in a pile of cotton waste swept through a hardware and feed store last night in an estimated $21,000 blaze.

The Farmers Supply Co., Inc., was gutted. President A. T. Bowen said, but volunteer fire fighters kept the blaze from attacking his $100,000 ginning plant next door.
