Fire at Oramel
A fire occurred about 5 o’clock on the afternoon of the 8th inst., at Oramel, which destroyed the entire Oramel Block of Buildings, in which was the Oramel House. We have not learned the amount of loss or whether the building was insured. Mr. Oramel Griffin was the owner of the building, and we understand lost all his books and papers, together with two thousand dollars in money.
