OUTBREAK OF FIRE. -
TWO SHOPS DESTROYED.
YINNAR, Tuesday. - An outbreak of fire occurred here at 9 o'clock last night, when two shops and a dwellinghouse were completely destroyed. The fire broke out in the rear portion of Mr John More's store, and quickly spread to Mr. Robinson's bakery shop, and thence to his dwelling- house. More's stock was insured in the Commercial Union Company for £1,000. The building, which is owned by the trustees of the estate of the late Mr. T Walsh, was insured for £300. Robinson's bakery and house, owned by Mr. T. Bolger, were in- sured in the New Zealand National Com- pany for £200, and the stock was covered by a policy of £150 in the Patriotic Com- pany.
