Servant Girl at Mrs. A. R. Meyer's
Home Causes a Fire Alarm.

All because the domestic in the home of Mrs. August R. Meyer, Forty-fourth street and Warwick avenue, thought there were burglars in the house, and commenced calling loudly for help and crawling out of windows, a fire alarm was turned in by a neighbor who supposed the house to be in flames. The department responded with the usual alacity, placed a ladder against the building and extracted a servant girl from vines on the roof, where she had become entangled in her efforts to escape.

After a reasonable length of time the absence of the supposed burglar was clearly established to the satisfaction of the domestics, who returned to bed. The fire department smiled and drove back to the station.
