    DISTRUCTIVE FIRE AT SUNDERLAND. On Tuesday morning, about eight o'clock,
    a destructive fire broke out in a warehouse of Messrs Pearman and Cordner,
    wholesale grocers, Princes Street, Bishopwearmouth. The premises were
    originally part of an old patent ropery, which had been built on to in the rear,
    and was surrounded by ale and porter stores, coach works, &c. The warehouse was
    locked up safe at seven on the proceeding night, and no one had entered them until
    next morning, when the upper part of the rear of the premises was discovered to be
    in flames. The building was old and dry, and the wood work well saturated with tar.
    The fire spread with great rapidity, and before the arrival of the police hose
    barrow, which was within a few minutes, it had got complete possession of the whole
    building in which were a large stock of teas, sugar, and miscellaneous stock.
    An abundant supply of water was at hand, and the hose were played, but so strong
    a hold had the fire got, that it spread downwards in a very short time, and the whole
    interior was burning like a furnace. The books were rescued from the office, a
    building adjoining, but this was the only part of the Messrs Pearman and Cordner's
    possessions that were saved. The warehouse, three storeys in height, was gutted
    from top to bottom, except the cellars in which Mr W. Giimshaw had stored a quantity
    of ales. The stock was completely destroyed, but though the abundant of supply of
    water and the exertions of the police, the adjoining property remained uninjured.
    As to the origin of the fire nothing can be said. At seven o'clock on the preceding
    night one of the partners closed the warehouse, extinguished the gas, and leaving all
    safe; but in the upper storey there had been a fire on, and probably this had emitted
    some sparks amongst the stock and it had smouldered during the night as, when first
    seen it had a good hold of the upper part of the building. The total damage will be
    about £5,000 or £6,000, of which Messrs Pearman and Cordner are insured £3,000.
    Mr Grimshaw the ownar of the premises is only partly insured.
