TABLE No. 5. DAMAGE TO MANUFACTURING PLANTS BY FIRE OR FLOOD.

On this table will be found a record of the destruction by fire of property in use for manufacturing purposes during the year. The date of fire, names of firms concerned, location of factory, character of industry and value of property destroyed, are given separately for each establishment involved.

The total number of fires in industrial plants was 117, or eleven more than were reported for the previous year, and the losses per establishment range from the trifling sum of $10, upward to $223,206.

The grand total of all factory and workshop losses by fire, is $2,853,041. For the twelve months ending September 30th, 1909, the total loss recorded was $2,541,256. The increase for the twelve months ending September 30, 1910, is therefore $311,785, or 12.2 per cent.

Table No. 4 shows that $5,534,755 was added to the total value of property used for manufacturing purposes in the State; deducting therefore the value of property similarly employed that was destroyed by fire during the same period, and we have a net gain for the year in the value of property devoted to industrial purposes, of $2,681,714.

As a matter of course, the greater number of fires occurred in the larger industrial centers, although practically all parts of the State where there is any manufacturing industry, suffered one or more visitations of that kind. The record for Newark is thirty-eight fires, total loss, $712,019. Trenton, thirteen, total loss $43,521. Jersey City, ten, total loss $664,123. Paterson, nine, total loss $186,556, and Camden, six, total loss $111,075. Thirty-five other cities and towns report from one to three factory fires each, all but a few of them small, so far as the value of property destroyed is concerned.
