"BOMBED OUT: Firemen putting out the last of the flames that gutted this building at 9 Ripon Road, Kingston, on Wednesday night. It is reported that at about 10:30 pm, four men travelling in a car threw gas bombs at the building owned by Warren Prestige. The building housed a tailoring establishment, garment factory and dwelling house. Two units from the York Park Fire Station which fought the blaze were hampered by low water pressure. The building was completely destroyed."
