Fire at PenrhiwceiW. i BRAVE MOTHER RESCUES HER CHILDREN. A fire occurred on Saturday night at tlie house of Mr. Archibald Avebury, 83, Park- street, and its origin was due to the overturn- ing of a large table lamp ia the kitchen. Mrs. Avebury at the time was upstairs putting the four children to bed, and upon running down to the kitchen beneath the bedroom she found the furniture ablaze. Realising the. danger she returned to the bedroom and opened the win- dow. A largo crowd had by this time assem- bled, and the four children were handed down safely. Mrs. Avebury also made good her es- cape, although she sustained considerable burns. By this time the fire had burnt through the kitchen ceiling and the bed which the child- ren had previously occupied was burnt to ashes. Messrs. Morris and Michael Crook, of 66, Park-street (two brothers) who were passing when the alarm of fire was first raised, were in- formed that there were children in the bed- room, and through the dense smoke thev rush- ed into the house, but were overcome by the smoke, and in trying to retrace their steps Morris Crook fell over a table and sustained considerable injury, and Michael Crook had his left arm badly cut. Both were attended by Dr. Ben Phillips-Jones. A lodger, John Sullivan, who was one of those who caught the children when thrown out, also sustained burns. The fire was got. under by neighbours with buckets t of water. The damage is estimated at JB30. When the fire brigade came upon the scene the fire had been got under. P.S. Boulton and P.C.'s Bennett and Hill rendered assistance. ♦
