SERIOUS CASE OF BURNING AT BARRY DOCK TOWN. A YOUNG WOMAN SEVERELY INJURED. About seven o'clock on Saturday morning last a girl named Elizabeth Siowers, aged tifteen, a servant in the employ of Mr T. Ewbank, schoolmaster, Barry Dock Town, received injuries of a somewhat serious character. The unfortunate girl had lit the fire in her master's kitchen, and was engaged cleaning the grate when her apron caught fire, and in a moment she was all ablaze. The terrified girl ran out to the back of the house and screamed for assistance. Mr Ewbank, her master, who was in bed at the time, heard her cries, and at once rushed down stairs and found the girl in a mass of flames out in the yaid, and prostrate with fright. He pulled off her burning apron, threw it away, and wrapped her clothes tightly round her body, so as to extinguish the fire, but his efforts were not attended with success until he had enveloped her in a sack and carpet, and, with the assistance of a Mrs Booker, the injured girl was brought back to the house. Mr Ewbank then ran for medical assistance, and Dr Treharne arrived in the course of a few minutes, and found the girl had sustained painful in- juries to her right side and the lower part of her body. The injuries were duly attended to, and the girl's mother (who lives at Gilbert, Dinas Powis) sent for, and the young sufferer was conveyed to her home in the course of the afternoon, where she is now under careful treatment towards recovery.
