    A SALUTE TO OUR FIREFIGHTERS, The Pairpoint Mill fire was one of the toughest mill fires New Bedford Firefighters battled in the city's history. This General Alarm conflagration required mutual aid from surrounding towns. It started on October 1st, 1965. The flames where so intense that it blew horizontally out the brick factory windows like a blow torch. The Pairpoint Manufacturing Company was established in 1880 in New Bedford, MA, on the property adjoining on one of the earliest New England glass-works, The Mount Washington Glass Company. Pairpoint was originally formed to make plated Britannia metal products to complement the glasswares of the Mt.Washington Company. Thomas J. Pairpoint, a London-born businessman was named superintendent of the new company. In 1894 Pairpoint Manufacturing Company purchased Mt. Washington and the two companies merged under the name Pairpoint Corporation This merger set the scene for the manufacture of lamps and other goods comprised of metal and glass under the name of Pairpoint. The Pairpoint Corporation employed more than 300 persons in 1906 making a variety of blown and molded glasswares and silver plated Britannia metal wares from pragmatic to ornamental presentation pieces including tea sets, prize cups, flatware and other cut glass articles. The Great Depression and the Reciprocal Trade Acts forced the company to close, and in 1939 it was sold to Mr. Isaac Babbit, Thomas Tripp, and Chester A. W. Best, who remained it first, Guderson Glass works, then in 1952, Gudersons Pairpoint. The plan closed in 1956, and the old factory on Prospect Street, long since deserted was destroyed by fire in 1965. The Pairpoint Mill had been condemned and was slated for demolition to make way for the South Terminal Renewal Project when firee broke out on the morning of October 2, 1965. The fire was apparently started by a man cutting though a live gas pipe with a torch so that he could steal the pipe. The pipe ignited, and the old mill was instantly engulfed in flames. Luckily, though there was wind, it was also a rainy day, which helped prevent further spread of the flames to other nearby structures and nearby fuel tanks. More than 100 firefighters from nine engines and three ladder companies were called in to battle the fire, the worst since the Soule Mill fire in 1938. (Footage by WTEV-6 News.)
