Fire dis­as­ter averted in Cri­eff but not Lang Toon

Strathearn Herald - - MEMORY LANE -

It’s busi­ness as usual at the new bar of Rose­bank Ho­tel, Cri­eff, in spite of a fire which ex­ten­sively dam­aged three rooms on Wed­nes­day night.

It is thought a joist be­low the lounge fire­place started smoul­der­ing and caused the fire.

The fire was dis­cov­ered by the pro­pri­etors , Mr and Mrs Joseph Carmichael, who were awak­ened by the noise at two o’clock in the morn­ing and ini­tially thought some­one was try­ing to break in.

Else­where the same night, more than 20 pigs, in­clud­ing a lit­ter born on Christ­mas Day, per­ished in a shed fire near Auchter­arder.
