The fire in the early hours of 29 January 1895 caused a huge explosion and could be seen as far away as Stonegravels. The wintry weather slowed the progress of the firemen and the hydrants were frozen.
The Nunney family lived on Church St. and Charles Nunney was walking past early in the morning and raised the alarm at about 1am.
The full report of the fire was published in the Sheffield Evening Telegraph on 29 January 1895
