ELEVEN ENGINES RESPOND TO FIRE IN LADY'S APARTMENT

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Four engine companies of two pieces each, two ladder trucks, a rescue truck, and most of the Cambridge police force jammed the center of the Square at 8 o'clock last night to extinguish a configuration in the bedroom of Miss V. M. Union of 20 Boylston Street.

Apparently caused by a cigarette which ignited a bed mattress and spread to an easy chair, the fire was estimated to have caused damage of approximately $500 to the small apartment. Miss Union escaped injury.
