Royal Gazette 2 Aug., 1831

Yesterday morning, about nine o'clock, the house of John Godkin, mason, situated at the eastern extremity of the town, was discovered to be on fire, but by the prompt assistance of the neighbors, the flames were subdued, after they had burnt through one of the floors. The fire originated in the upper part of the house. A little boy about eight years old, the son of John Nichol, an artillery pensioner, who was asisting to draw water to extinguish the fire, fell into a draw well, the depth of twenty-three feet, but was got out without injury.
