BIOGRAPHICAL: 
A MIDNIGHT FIRE. Residence of Thomas Holman Considerably Damaged; Origin of the Blaze is Not Known- House and Contents Covered by Insurance. 
At 2:10 o’clock this (Sunday) morning fire was discovered in the residence of Thomas Holman, at No. 376 High street, and before the flames had been subdued, the interior of the building, together with the major part of the contents, had been greatly damaged. The house and contents were insured in the Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company, of San Francisco, but in the absence, from the city, of Mr. Holman, the exact amount of the insurance could not be ascertained. 
The origin of the fire, which started in the sitting room, is an unexplained mystery, for there had been no fire in the house for nearly forty-eight hours preceding the blaze. The kitchen and rear apartments were almost entirely destroyed, while the interior of the sitting room and adjoining rooms was greatly damaged by the fire and water. A considerable amount of the furnishings of the house was removed by the firemen and neighbors. 
Mrs. Holman and nephew, Freddie Meyer, who occupied a bedroom on the upper floor, were carried from the building and down a ladder to the ground, being quite overcome by the dense smoke that pervaded the entire building. 
The fire was discovered by Mrs. Holman shortly after 2 o’clock and by her cry of "fire" attracted the attention of H. George Meyer who was returning home from his place of business, and who gave tha alarm to the fire department, which made a quick response and rendered efficient service in extinguishing the blaze.
