Fire.- The house of Mr. Stephen Collins at Dartmouth was burned to the ground on Sunday last. All the family were at church and it is supposed that a spark from the chimney lighted on the roof, and ignited the shingles—the flames quickly communicating to the whole tenement. We are sorry to hear that a part of the furniture, &c was likewise consumed.
—Acadian Recorder, Sat. 26 May 1827.
