INFANT WAS BADLY BURNED
OLDER CHILD SET FIRE TO
CLOTHING IN CAB.
Special to the Times Journal:
Charles City, Ia., Dec. 7. – The 5 years old child of Dan Hoerner, while playing with matches this morning, set fire to the baby cab and, becoming frightened, ran from the room and closed the door. The mother later smelled smoke and investigating, found the cab and baby in flames. She seized the infant and, running out, rolled it in the snow, extinguishing the flames, but not before both were badly burned. No serious results are expected.
