Fire Draws Crowd: A noon-hour fire yesterday at the Virginian restaurant, 313 S. State St., brought firefighting equipment and a large crowd to the scene, as shown in top photo. Though the blaze was confined to the basement, damage is expected to total several thousand dollars. In the picture at lower left [this photo], employes and University students are busy moving stock from Wild & Co., next door to the restaurant, to avoid smoke damage. Dense smoke hampered firemen in their attempts to bring the fire under control. At lower right, Fred Schmid retreats gasping from the interior of the restaurant. Chief Ernest Heller, who was breathing with difficulty this morning, said the fire was probably caused by defective wiring in the ceiling of the basement.
