out ot
the bedroom and across to the stairs
leading to the first floor of the house,
Mrs. Sanso thought that all hope ot
taking the sick boy out of the house
that way was cut off. and she began
to call for help. Joseph Terra
nova, ot No. 519 Tntnall street,
crawled to the roof of the adjoining
house and with the help of her
daughter,. Latina Sanso. Mrs. Sanso
handed the aick boy out of the win
dow to the man on the roof, w'ho by
this time was helped by several oth
er persons. It was a very hard mat
ter to take the boy from the win
dow as there la considerable distance
between the house and the roof on
which the men were standing. The
task was finally accomplished, how
ever, and the boy was taken from
the roof to the Physicians' and Sur
geons' Hospital in the Phoenix am
bulance. He was in a very serious
condition when he arrived there.
Much of his hair had been burned
by the flames and he had several
other small burns about the body,
As soon as Mr». Sanso saw that her
boy was safe she collapsed from the
excitement and It was considerable
time before she coul d be revived,
Lanna Sasso. the boy's sister, also
fainted, but in a short time w as re
vlved.
The Fame and Weccacoe fire com
paules responded to the alarm, and
In a short time extinguished the
blaze. The damage is estimated at
about $250, which is covered by in

Lewis Sanso, the boy's brother, is
