A little boy, who was sleeping in one of the back rooms, had a narrow escape, being unable to find the door owing to the density of the smoke. He was rescued through the window. Mr. Jones was away at the time, being employed as a railway carpenter at Serviceton. The house and furniture was insured in the New Zealand Company for £270.
