ve fire. --About 10 o'clock last Tuesday night the four-story brick building on the east side of 15th street, between Main and Cary, the first floor occupied by Mr. Geo. W. Willis as an auction-room, and the second, third, and fourth by Mr. Alexander Nott as ware and storage- rooms, was discovered to be on fire and the alarm speedily given. When the firemen reached the scene they found that the goods on every floor were on fire, and, forcing the door, set to work earnestly to check and subdsants, which was saved, together with its contents. At one time it was generally believed that every tenement in the block would be destroyed, but the skill and energy of the fire brigade confined the flames to the tenement in which they were discovered. The losses of Messrs. Wills and Nott are heavy and their insurance light. The fire was no doubt the work of an incendiary; but how he entered the building to apply the torch, or escaped from it after doing so, is a matter of conjecture.
