Enveloped in Flames. I FIREMAN'S TRAGIC END AT ABERDARE I OUTBREAK. An inquest was held at Merthyr on Tuesday upon Alfred Davies (56), of Albert-street, Aber- dare, an auxiliary fireman, who, with nine other men, was injured at the blaze at Messrs. Holwell ,and Co.'s oil stores, Aberdare, on Saturday week. Walter Cox, manager, said Davies was playing with a hose on the fire when an oil tank, con- taining 2,700 gallons of petroleum, exploded, and the flames enveloped him. Police-inspector D. Griffiths said he saw Davies running with his clothes afire, and the flames were put out by wrapping him in rugs. Mr. David Edwards ten- dered the firm's sympathy with the relatives, and said an appeal respecting the dead man's family was being put before them. Mr. W. R. Morgan (Town Clerk) said the district council also had passed a vote of sympathy with Davies' family. The Coroner (Mr. R. J. Rhys): That is very nice, Mr. Morgan, but is there any chance of provision for the widow and children?—Mr. Mor- gan I hope so/sir. A verdict of "Death from shock due to burns" was returned.
