On March 16, 1911, about midnight, the people of Chesapeake City were called from their homes by a fire alarm.  The town at this time did not have any Fire Company and the town residents had to use buckets in order to stop the fire.  The fire was located on Canal Street.  The men with their buckets were doing all they could to put an end to the blaze but it had too much of a head start.

 
The steamer PENN was going through the Canal, seeing the blaze stopped to help and with their help were able to save some buildings, but not before the fire destroyed three buildings.  This was a great loss to the owners of the houses as well as for the people living in them.

 
The people of the town hastened to organize a Fire Company.  A meeting was held on April 1, 1911 in a building owned by Mr. Reed.  At this meeting they decided to ask each taxpayer in town to pay a certain amount towards the starting of a Fire Company.
