Fire at West Fitchburg - Fitchburg Sentinel, Friday, July 5, 1861

Fire at West Fitchburg-The dwelling house of Wm. Woodbury, Jr., says the Reveille, formerly well known as the "old Tavern stand," in West Fitchburg, was burned to the ground Tuesday forenoon. The fire, we understand, was caused by some defect in the chimney. Part of the furniture was saved. We have not learned whether there was any insurance on the building or not. The engines from West Fitchburg were present. The alarm did not reach this village.
