Theater District Smoked Up At Curtain Time Last Night
PM Daily, January 24, 1941, Vol. 1, No. 158, p. 15
The fire started among baled bolts of cotton fabric in the basement of 70 W. 38th St. The alarm was sent in at 8 o’clock and a second at 8:21. By 8:45, though the smoke made it a mean one to get at, the blaze had been doused without damage to millinery shops on the upper floors. The parked car at center got a soaking. One fireman was seriously burned in the foot.
