FATAL FIRE AT WANDSWORTH. On Thursday a fire broke out at Chatham-road, Wandsworth Common, which caused the death of one child and seriously injured two others. The parents had gone to their work, leaving the children in charge of a. woman in the next room. She had occasion to go out for a little shopping, and left the children in her own room, where there was a fire. Shortly atterwards screams were heard, and smoke was seen issuing from the win- dows. Some labouring men procured a ladder, plenty of water, and the fire was subdued, when two of the children were found nearly dead. They were immediately taken to the Bolingbroke House Hospital and Dispensary. The surgeon pro- nounced the youngest, only seven months old, quite dead. In the meantime the father returned, and on being told that only two of his children had been rescued, he made his way to the room, and another child was found under the bedstead, struggling on its back, and almost at its last gasp. This one was also taken to the hospital, and is now in a" very precarious state.
