staggered about East 121st street, too
hysterical to tell firemen of their peril.

Harlem tenement. The second blaze,
started in a baby carriage, was quickly
extinguished.
The six victims of the first fire were
trapped in their fourth-floor apart
ment, Firemen entering the room*
found the bodies, some nude, some in
scanty nightclothes, piled on top of
each other in the middle bed room.

flambered up 85-foot ladders saved the
lives of another family of three in the
same building. Mrs. Mary Cunningham
and her two sons, Thomas. 9, and
