Fire. — A marquee, erected by Mr S. P. Syversen as a photograph studio, on a piece of ground the property of the Union Bank, on the Main South-road, was destroyed by fire yesterday morning. It appears that while Mr Syversen was searching for something in the dark room with a lighted match in his hand, the tent caught fire, the flames spreading rapidly. A number of people were quickly on the spot, and the fire was soon extinguished, but not before it had burned about two-thirds of the marquee, and injured a portion of the camera, chemicals, and other stock. The accident is very unfortunate for the man, for he had only just completed the marquee, and intended commencing business to-day.

Timaru 31st December 1876
A fire occurred at 3 o'clock this morning at a house belonging to the public trustee for the heirs of the late Dr. Levy. It was occupied by a Norwegian photographer named Syverson, who took in boarders. Everything was destroyed owing to a want of water. This is the second time Syverson has been burned out in Timaru. He was insured. The fire was caused by the upsetting of a kerosene lamp.
