"The fire commenced in the rear carriage of the 5 p.m. train from Seaforth Sands, due at Dingle at 5.32, but which was six minutes late, and which, owing to some defect in the rear motor, came to a stand about 80 yards outside Dingle station. The fire, after spreading from carriage to carriage, finally attacked the station, which was entirely burnt out."
