  1. In the year 1935, the county Wicklow garage went a fire in main street Bray. The people belived that it was the cause of the petrol. There was a lot of damage done. A big stock of motorcars belong to private owners were burned to the ground. The fire lasted for serval hours, which the firebegrade had great difficulty getting it under control. The shop next to it was very near going afire also.
    But the Bray firebegrade had to ring up the Dublin firebegrade when they saw it spreading.
