Nobody within the boiler room .sur vived to tell the story of th.5 accident, and it may never be known what caused the explosion. A careful in vestigation indicates that it was the icsult of careh-ssness on the part of an employe whose own life also was lost. Five minutes after the expio.--.-nothing of the boiler bottle bit a pile of twisted iron, bricks and nun tar lemaincd. Sheets of flames sprang from the ruins and the spectators realized th:t it would be impossible to save th- lives of those who were caught in tin wreck.
