Destruction of Churches by fires originating in the organs.
1. The Organ is damp, a lamp or stove is placed in it and left to burn all night, with the result of setting it on fire.
2. The Organist, the Blower, the Tuner, or a workman making repairs, strikes a match, or lights a spirit lamp taper, or candle, which he leaves burning, with the result of setting the Organ on fire.
3. The music desk lights are movable brackets which can be placed so that the flames touch woodwork: this is done once, and the whole is set on fire.
