Ravenna Station narrowly Escapes Destruction by Fire
(Special to The Evening Press.)

Ravenna, April 29.- A box car filled with merchandise, standing in the rear of the Grand Rapids & Indiana station here, caught fire last night and the station itself was saved only by men who by main strength pushed the blazing car into the open. The car and its contents, valued at $1000, were totally destroyed. The loss falls principally on Beers Bros., E. Bartholomew and other merchants here.
