DISASTROUS FIRE AT LLANDAFF. Shortly before half-past one on Tuesday morning a fire was discovered on the premises known as the Old Red Lion Hotel, Llandaff. Police-constable Phillips, on going out of the police-station about that time, noticed that the roof of the house was on fire, and immediately went for assistance. Police- constable 127 (Davies) and Mr. Burness, who were close at hand, went at once to the house, and suc- ceeded in getting the furniture out of the dining- room. In the meantime the intelligence had been conveyed to the fire-engine station at Cardiff, and shortly afterwards a manual engine arrived, under the direction of Superintendent Price and Engineer Jenkins. The roof had fallen in, however, and it was evident that the whole of the premises must be destroyed. The only available supply of water was from the stream just below the cathedral, and it bad to be pumped up the hill from that spot. Mr C. Newman, the occupier of the house, and his niece were awakened by the smell of burning, but they had no difficulty in making their escape from the building. The efforts of the brigade were directed towards the adjoining property, and the furniture of Mr. J. V. Charley, who resides next door, had to be removed. All attempts to save the goods of Mr Newman, however, proved fruitless, and in two hours after the discovery was first made the whole place, with its contents, had been totally consumed. The origin of the fire is unknown. The damage, however, is covered by insurance. The Red Lion was formerly tenanted by Mr. Richard 'Williams, and was the largest hotel in the city. Previous to the Sunday Closing Act coming into operation it was much frequented by people visiting the cathedral, but in August, 1884, the landlord was, unfortunately, convicted of permitting drunkenness. The result was that when the re- newal of the licence was asked for the following inonth the application was refused. Shortly after- wards it was utilised for the Llandaff Ladies* College, and ultimately as a private dwelling-house This is only the second fire in Llandaff for sixteen years.
