Willie Flees With His Bride, From a
Burning Villa at.Oakdale* L. I.
ESCAPED INJURY BUT BADLY SCARED
Fifteen Servants Reach the Open Air in Safety
- Mysterious Destruction of W. K. Van
derbilt's Country Home.
New York City, April n.— Following close upon
the sensational fires which have occurred in this city
recently, resulting in the loss of many millionaires' lives,
comes news that Wm. K. Vanderbilt's elegant country
home, "Idiehour," at Oakdale. L. 1., was destroyed by
fire at 4 o'clock* this morning. It so happened that no
lives were.lost, although there were many people in the
building asleep when the flames broke out in the cellar.
Among the inmates were W. K. Vanderbilt, Jr. and
his bride, nee Miss Virginia Fair, who were sleeping in
one of the tip-stairs apartments.
When aroused by the outcry of a servant, young
Vanderbilt's first thought was for his wife and he hur
ried her out of the burning structure, both reaching the
outside in safety. ,
Fifteen servants occupying rooms in the house also
escaped without injury.
The fire is said to have started accidentally from a
furnace pipe in the basement, although there is con
siderable mystery svrrounding the affair.
The fact that no one was hurt is considered re
markable, in view of the hour at which the fire occurred
and the number of people exposed to peril.
