1909 'BRISTOL DISTILLERY FIRE TAXES FIREMEN TO UTMOST. The greatest portion of the premises of the Bristol Distilling Company, Radcliffe [Redcliffe] Street, Bristol, was destroyed by fire early yesterday morning. The conflagration started in the upper floor of block about one hundred feet by eighty, extending from the street to the harbour, and stored with great quantities of grain and maize. The fire burned furiously and barges moored at the wharf were ignited by the burning debris. The firemen by tremendous exertions were able save the adjoining premises.'[2]
