den L. Holden, lost all the furni
ture. clothes, and personal pos
; sessions acquired during their
| five years of marriage.

ed by the boy, Ronnie.
Mr. Holden had left for work
when the fire broke out this
morning. His wife, Betty Jean,
22. gave this account of the
blase ta Highland Dwellings:
She was upstairs and suddenly j
realized she didn’t know where!
Ronnie was. Searching for him,
she opened the door to.a utility
room off the kitchen, and was
greeted by leaping flames.
Leaving the door open, Mrs.
i Holden ran through the house
looking for her son. She finally'
found him hiding under a bed.;
The young mother, in her j
housecoat, and Ronnie ta his pa- ■
| jamas fled the building.
I The fire department was called
i at 8:55 a.m.
Firemen were able to stop the!
1 blaze from spreading, but couldn’t j
■, save the Holdens’ apartment.
Mrs. Holden said Ronnie might i
have started the fire by sticking!
a mop into the coal furnace and i
then puling it out. Ronnie said j
I he didn’t, and Mr. Holden was j
: inclined to believe him.
“He never played with matches I
and he feels the truth,” Mr. j
Holden declared.
He said his family would move
ta with his mother, Mrs. Ruth
Goldsmith, 602 Emerson street
N.E.
