Timeline:

1911. Fire Sunday totally destroyed the freight sheds of the Michigan Central railroad and the Washburn-Crosby company's warehouse, entailing a loss of $25,000, fully insured. Four loaded cars were also destroyed and telegraph connections are down. This makes the fourth fire within a few days and the second one in as many n9ights at the MC yards. All evidence points to incendiarism, the four fires having all been started within a quarter mile radius of one another and in buildings unoccupied at night.; [DFP-1911-0704]

1917. The MC had an operator/clerk here around the clock. [TRT]
