Georgetown, CT School Grounds Fire, Dec 1899
Connecticut Victim of Fire Dead
Special to The New York Times.
NORWALK, Conn., Nov. 22.--Edith Fryer, who was so severely burned on the school grounds in Georgetown, died to-day. She sat on a rock under which some children had built a fire of leaves, and did not know it until her clothing was ablaze. She began to run, which only fanned the flames, and before they could be smothered she was fatally burned.
