Bomb said Wallace T. Holliday,
General Chairman o The Ohio Fire
Safety Committee ti day. “Kerosene
is very dangerous” 1 continued. Last
year in the state of Ohio alone, over
one hundred deaths were caused by

than two hundred people, most of
them children, were maimed or dis
figured for life because someone in
sisted on starting a fire with kero
sene. Many country people and city
folks too, have started fires with
kerosene for years without coming
to grief, stated C. H. Metz, Director
of Industrial Relations of The Stand
ard Oil Company, and Executive
Director of The Ohio Fire Safety
Committee, but they were not smart,
he added, “they were just lucky.”
Many more were not so lucky, and
i either lost their lives or homes, or
both, because of this foolish practice.
Thomas Henderson, Safety Director
for The Standard Oil Company, added
this information Our Company
handles millions of gallons of kero
sene yearly, and because we handle
it with care and caution in well

protected and proper types of storage
tanks and containers, we have no
trouble with it.
1 housands of people, such as the
woman depicted, are still using kero
sene for starting or quickening fires,
even when they know of the explo
sion hazard involved and the appall
ing record of lives lost as a result.
Never pour kerosene into a fire box
or onto hot coals or hot grates.
Kerosene when heated above lOt)
degrees releases vapors that are more
explosive than gasoline. When these
vapors come in contact with flame,
or Hames run back into the container,
they explode with a violent force
destroying an entire home, such as
the one in the picture. Storage
tanks for kerosene should be under
ground or at least 15 feet away from
any building.
Surely the people of Ohio can
learn a lesson from those who handle
millions of gallons of volatile liquids
daily without mishap, and use the
kerosene in their possession cautious
ly and carefully, thereby avoiding the
disastrous results depicted above.
