THOMAS F. MAGNER

Chief George E. Egger, veteran head of the Westerly, R. I., Fire Department, died on July 29 at the Westerly Hospital from injuries received in a fall from a hay loft on the Thorp farm, Potter’s Hill, near Westerly, on July 28. Chief Egger responded to a call from the Thorp home for a fire thought to be in a barn. Searching for the blaze, the chief went to the second floor and in walking through the hay fell from the loft to the ground floor, sustaining a fractured skull and internal injuries.
