10th Jan 1947: a "slight" fire

10 Fri. Severe white morning frost which disappeared suddenly midday the temperature rising to 44°, very dull, drizzle late in day. A slight outbreak of fire in the roof of 10 Oxford Avenue. I stood by for a little while, while firemen went in to have a look; the escape soon went and left the engine there. Got the meat and other provisions locally. Met Laurie & Donald just returning from a hair-cut. Gwennie left her gloves here this afternoon: she will be after them tomorrow.
