FIRE DESTROYS F. BAILEY CAMP
Fred Bailey, ardent Saranac Lake sportsman, lost his guns, fishing equipment and clothing along with all other camp equipment in a fire that destroyed his camp on the Saranac River last evening.
The camp is located on the left shore of the Saranac River just below the lower locks.
Mr. Bailey, who had been in camp during the day, was out on the water in his boat when he saw the blaze about 5:30 p. m. He does not know how it started.
The camp, a 24 by 19 foot wooden structure with a tin roof, was owned by Mr. Bailey for seven years. It was insured for $2000, but the owner does not feel that the insurance can begin to cover the loss.
