At about noon on Tuesday the farm house of Scott LeVoy at Millburn was entirely consumed by fire, the contents of the lower floor being all that was saved.
How the fire started seems to be a mystery. The house was a two story frame building with a lean-to kitchen, where the fire started, and was an entire mass of flames when the neighbors arrived. The high wind that was blowing at the time made it an easy prey to the elements and it was destroyed in a very short time. It was insured in the Millburn Insurance Co.
