A BIG fire occurred in Hughenden, North Queensland, on June 11. The buildings destroyed included the Railway Hotel, livery stables, five shops, several business offices, and a large store. The damage is estimated at close on £6000, about half of which is covered by insurance. The inmates of the hotel practically saved nothing.
