From the Richmond Examiner, 11/9/1864

Burning of the Libby Prison Stables. - Between six and seven o'clock on Monday, the frame stable, corner of Twentieth and Cary streets, opposite the Libby Prison, was set on fire and burned to the ground before the firemen could arrive upon the spot. The stable was in the occupancy of several horses belonging to the commandant of the post, Major Turner, and other officers of the prison - The loss is about one thousand dollars. But for the dampness prevailing at the time, the Libby Prison would have been in some danger. As it was the prisoners were very much concerned, and clamoured to be released.
