From the Richmond Examiner, 6/13/1863

FIRE AT SEABROOK’S HOSPITAL. – The alarm of fire at 10˝ o’clock last night, arose from the burning of some combustibles in the kitchen of the Seabrook’s Hospital, in Jefferson Ward. Some alarm was created among the inmates, but the fire department soon suppressed the flames, and there was no occasion for the removal of the inmates. The damage sustained was small. We presume the fire originated from accident.
