Fireworks Explode As Factory Burns; Milltown Alarmed


MILLTOWN, April 8. – Eureka firemen answered a still alarm to North Brunswick township yesterday afternoon when they responded to the fire at the Unexcelled fireworks plant on George’s Road. The explosions at the fireworks plant were very obvious and many, people were alarmed until they looked out of their windows and observed the valley of smoke that enveloped the atmosphere in that section. The firemen responded in record time and were at the grounds five minutes after the call was sounded. They centered their work on the outlying buildings, and saved many from explosions.
