Denaby Burning Fatality.

The death has occurred in the Fullerton Hospital of Mary Hubey, aged five, daughter of John Hubey, miner. Adwick street, Denaby, from burns.

The child went into a neighbour’s house, and seizing an apron from the sofa, held it before the fire. The apron got ablaze, and set fire her clothes.

Her mother hearing her screams, ran to her assistance, and she was removed to the hospital, where she died.
