Narrow Escape, - "The premises of Messrs. George and Joseph Morris, millers of Peterborough, narrowly escaped destruction by fire on Christmas Eve, two vagrants after the family had retired for the night, having domiciled themselves in an out-house, the roof of which covered with thatch, is not more than four feet from the flour, and made a fire therein; fortunately the night was still, or in all probability the whole premises would have been sacrificed to their carelessness".
