Watkins Street Fire

Fire on Watkins Street
Nashville Globe – January 25, 1907 (Pg. 5)

Monday morning, before 1 and 2 o’clock, an alarm was sounded for a fire on Watkins street, near Jackson street, which threatened the destruction of the whole block. Owing to the bad condition of the street the company did not make as good time as it generally does, having to go to Park street before making a turn to the South. It is stated that the fire started in the residence of Mrs. Edmondson and before it could be checked two houses were burned, one containing the grocery store of Samuel Cole, whose stock and fixtures were entirely destroyed. It is said that Mr. Cole was insured.
