Rose Hill Mill

Location Lever st

Updated September 21, 2015 3:05 PM

1903 April 4th Shortly after nine o'clock a quantity of spare bobbins on the second floor of the mill having become ignited.
The Fire Brigade were apprised of the outbreak, and Deputy Superintendent Jones turned out with the tender, ladders, and Victoria steamer, and their appearance in Lever St where there are so many large mills, created a feeling of some alarm.
Fortunately the fire had been discovered before it had made much headway, and the sprinklers had worked to such good effect that when the firemen arrived on the scene a few buckets of water sufficed to extinguish the flames.
The cause of the outbreak is supposed to have been a dropped light after a gas had been lit near the scene where the fire originated. The damage was only slight.
