  • Description

    Fire completely destroys the largest hotel in Peterborough, Ontario, the Empress. It starts in a main-floor coffee shop and quickly spreads to the upper floors. The one-hundred-room hotel was valued at more than a million dollars. Firemen fought for ten hours before finally bringing the fire under control. No one was injured and the firemen made a room by room search -- wearing smoke masks --- to make sure no one was overlocked. About sixty people -- including patrons of the coffee shop were in the building when the fire broken out. It's believed to have started in the exhaust fun in the coffee shot kitchen.
