a fire at Dishley Grange

On Friday last a fire happened at Dishley Grange in this county, which had it not been timely discovered would in all probability have consumed the whole house. It began about five o’clock in the afternoon, ’tis said to be occasioned by some old wood lying in the chimney, which took fire; the whole house being an old one, built before the reign of King Henry the 8th, at which time prudential Architecture was in a very low state, had the above mentioned fire happened in the night it would have been quite impossible to have saved the house.
