Five Died in Rural Fire

Five Died in Rural Fire

The parents and three children, all of one family in Wayne County, Pa., were buried in one casket, the aftermath of a fire which broke out at night. The house was without telephone service, and about one-fourth mile away from the nearest residence.

The father awoke at night to find his house afire. He succeeded in carrying his two youngest children to safety on two different trips. He cut himself badly, going through a window and later collapsed from loss of blood while trying to guide the other members of the family. Rescuers who were attracted by the red glow in the sky, found the three charred bodies.

Three of the older children were not at home the night of the fire.
