472 The FcUou-ship Fire Compaou of Fhiladtlphia.



THE FELLOWSHIP FIRE COMPANY OF PHILADEL-
PHIA, OEGANIZED 1738.

BY JOHN W. JORDAN.

The city of Philadelphia had not l)cen laid out one year
bctbre it was visited by a tire, the sutferers being some re-
cently arrived Germans, and for whose relief a subscription
was inade. As the city grew fires became more frequent
through faultily constructed chimneys and the general use of
wood for fuel, and Mayor Samuel Preston, in 1711, recom-
mended the purchase of buckets, hooks, and an engine.
In December of 1718 the City Council purchased of Abra-
ham Bickley an imported fire-engine for £50. This was
the first fire-engine owned by the city. The first "great
fire" took place on the night of April 24, 1730, a descrip-
tion of which is printed in Bradford's American Mercury of
April 30 :

On the 24th. inst, between Ten and Eleven at Night, the greatest
Fire happen'd in this city that ever has been known here. Some say it
began in a Store among Rigging. Several Stores under one long Eoof
on a Wharf (all belonging to Mr. Fishbourn) were so suddenly in Flames
'twas impossible to save much of the Goods in any of them. From
these a vast Pile of Staves took Fire, which increased the Heat there
was no coming near. Among other Parcels of Staves and "Wooden
Buildings were so nigh the Flames that all that End of the Town was
in eminent Danger ; but the Wind was low. Two Cooper Shops on
Kingstrcet, at the West End of the Stores flamed surprisingly, commu-
•nicated the Flames to two new Tenements of Mr. Fishbourn's, one of
which is almost entirely consumed ; and flying across that narrow Street
took Mr. Fishbourn's House that was Cap' Anthony's ; Mr. Plumsted's
new House and Mr. Dickinson's large fine Building : all which are
reducc-d to Ashes, except the Brick Walls, some of which and the
Chimneys, except Mr. Plumsted's House, which is not wholly destroy' d.
Many Gentlemen have lost considerable Quantities of Goods by the Fire
and by Thieves: And several other adjacent Buildings have sutfer'd.
But the Vigilance and Industry of great Numbers of well-disposed
People saved Abundance of Goods and valuable Things, and stopt the
Flames from spreading further ; on which Emergency the greatest Men

in the Town dii n-.t (liv.lain to labour very hard uith their own Hands.
And several of them, with otherff. have tiikeii this Occ:\i:ion (for People
vrould not bo mov'd at another Time) to make a Collection of Monov for
a better Engine than what we now have, and for good Buckets. The
loss sustained by the late dreadful Fire, amounts to several Thousand
Pounds.

This disastrous fire, \vliicli at one time tlireatened tlie
destruction of the southern part of tlie eitv, nuide the
whole popuhition ]-ealize how inadequate were the apiiaratns
and appHances tor the protection of tlieir property from tire.
The City Council at once ordered three firc-eno:ines and
two hundred leather buckets to he purchased in Endand,
and provided twenty ladders and twenty-five hooks and
axes. A year elapsed, however, before two of the engines
were received, and by direction of the mayor one was sta-
tioned in the yard of the Friends' Meetin^c-IIouse, Second
and Market Streets, the other on the lot of Francis Jones, '
corner Second and AVahiut Streets. The old Bickley engine
Wii5 stationed in the yard of the Baptist Church, on Second
near Arch Street. As late as 1771 only six fire-engines
comprised the entire force of the city.

In 17ol Franklin read a paper before his fellows of the
Junto Club on the accidents and carelessness by which
houses are set on fire, and made preventive recommenda-
tions. This gave rise to a project which followed, — of form-
ing an association for the extinguishing of fires and for mutual
assistance in remo\'ing and securing goods from damage.
On December 7, 1736, the Union Fire Company was organ-
ized vAWi thirty members, Franklin being of the number.

The second company to organize was the Fellowship Fire
Company, on March 1, 1738. The second Minute-Book of
this company, from March 7, 1742, to December 4, 1780, is
in the library of the Historical Society of Pennsylvania,
from which the following extracts have been copied :
