Tuesday 25 July 1848

A letter from Port Elizabeth referring to the late fire in that town, says that:-
"TENNANT, who was next door, noticed a strong smell of fire before he went to bed about 10 o'clock, and ROSELT went all over the house, but not finding anything, went to bed. About half past one young ROSELT was awoke in consequence of the very strong smell of fire which then pervaded the house; the house was again searched, and finding nothing, ROSELT went into the street, and on going round the corner saw the blaze on the top floor of KAY & Co's Store. TENNANT being very ill was carried to a neighbour's; and the store was emptied as far as the fire would admit. ANDREWS' store was nearly entirely emptied, also TENNANT's, and two of his neighbours in rear of the fire. I think they will get some compensation for loss they may have sustained, in endeavouring to preserve insured property from the flames."
A man has been taken into custody on suspicion of having set fire to the stores of Messrs KAY, HESS & Co, certain property belonging to the firm which was in the room in which the fire originated, and in which nothing was saved, having been found upon him.
