From the Richmond Dispatch, 11/10/1862, p. 1, c. 5

Conflagration Prevented. The alarm of fire about 12 o'clock Friday night was caused by the foundry of Mr. Joseph R. Anderson, on 7th street, corner of canal, catching fire from the engine. A lot of shingles ignited by the heat of the engine, and the flames communicating to a dry plank leading to the ceiling, the building was in a fair way of being burnt when discovered by Messrs. Burke and Stewart, who, after considerable exertion, put out the flames with buckets of water.
