Cherokee Phoenix and Indians' Advocate
Wednesday, March 24, 1830
Vol. II, no. 49
Page 3, col. 3a-4c

 The late fire at Brainerd, which we noticed in our last, has been more destructive than we first supposed.  Five principal houses, and a meat house, including all the meat, were burnt.  The fire extended its ravages so rapidly, that very little household property was saved.  The damage has been estimated from six to ten thousand dollars.
