W. Sara and Sons, of Redruth, Brass and Iron Founders.
1864 'Alarming Fire at Redruth.— A fire broke out about 4 in the afternoon of Wednesday, the 30th of March, on the premises of Mr W. Sara, iron founder, known as the Town Mill, situate on the Portreath road, about quarter mile from the town. It could not be got under until the whole of the dwelling house was gutted ; fortunately there were plenty of folks at hand, in addition to the workpeople, and they managed to save the bulk of the furniture. Some iron bedsteads could not be got out before the roof which was thatched fell in.'
