Twin Falls, ID House Fire, Jan 1931


TWIN FALLS, Idaho, Jan. 17.--(AP)--The four children of Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Brown are dead of injuries they received in a fire, starting from an exploding oil stove, which destroyed their home here last night.

The three older children, Phillip, three, and Virgil and Virginia, two-year-old twins, were found dead in their beds after firemen had subdued the flames. A ten-months-old baby rescued by her mother, died later from burns.

The mother, at a neighbor's home when the fire started, was unable to get into the house again to save the other children.
