FIRE AT LLANMAES STUD FARM. Information was sent to the Cardiff, Fire Brigade on Sunday morning that a large rick of hay consisting of about 150 tons was on fire at Llanmaes Stud Farm, St. Fagan's, the property of Mr. James Howell, draper, Cardiff. The manual engine was despatched in charge of two firemen, and it was found on their arrival that the rick was well alight. The engine was got to work from a pond about 500ft. from the conflagration, and, with plenty of assistance, the manual continued working until seven o'clock in the evening by which time the fire had been practically got under. The amount of the damage is estimated at about £ 450. The cause of the fire is unknown. The rick was situated in a field some distance from the farm buildings, so that there was no danger of the conflagration spreading.
