I remember this fire also. I was 8 years old, and lived across the street in the red Apartment building. Forkell Family lived close by also. There was also a little boy who was electrocuted at the train tracks the year before. That was really horrible.

The little boy was my brother Johnny, Nick name Jolly. He went to track with twins Nicky n Stevey. A man who saw him burning helped him, wish I could thank him. He died on the 16th. He just wanted to go home from hospital so we had casket at home. So many people came. I was 11. Always wonder where the twins are.... RIP Jolly
