GEELONG GRAMMAR SCHOOL CORIO

The Argus Melbourne 15 March 1918

FIRE AT GRAMMAR - SCHOOL.

GEELONG, Thursday.-About 11 o'clock this morning a fire broke out at the Geelong Grammar School, Corio. It occurred in the maids' quarters in the upstairs portion of Perry House. The school appliances were brought into use. A telephone message was sent to Geelong, and the city brigade was quickly on the scene in the motor fire-cart. Their combined efforts subdued the fire, which was confined between the ceiling and the roof. The damage is estimated at about £300. This was mainly caused by water, as it was necessary to keep a big stream going.

A large quantity of furniture and other goods was removed during the progress of the fire.
