Burned To Death
Steele Scrapbook - May 12, 1885


NEW YORK, MAY 12.—A pan of grease boiled over this morning on the stove in a second floor room in Bleecker street, which is occupied by Mrs. Payne, a colored woman. Her clothes caught fire, and, being alone in the room, she was burned to death before her cries and the smoke attracted help. The damage done to property was small.
