BURNED TO DEATH.
Frederick Knorr, his wife and daughter parish
in flames in Vernon Center
The little village of
Vernon Center was the scene of a horrible fire yesterday morning, in which
Frederick Knorr, his wife and a daughter, Anna, 11 years, were burned to
death. Mr. Knorr and his family occupied a house owned by Frank Cody, for
whom Knorr worked. About one a.m. yesterday Mrs. N.A. Bolmer, a neighbor
discovered that the house was on fire and immediately gave the alarm.
Mr. Bolmer and others tried to awaken the
inmates, but in vain. The fire was well under way before it was discovered,
and the strong wind blowing at the time caused the rapid destruction of
the house. Some of the neighbors entered the house to find the sleeping
rooms of the unfortunate family, but without success. Other energetically
to subdue the flames and prevent them from spreading. All attempts to find
Knorr and his family failed until the frame of the building had fallen,
when the three bodied were discovered among the debris in the cellar. They
were horribly charred and burnt. The limbs were burned off and the sight
of the baked trunks was sickening. An inquest was held by Coroner Lewis,
of Vernon, and a jury, and a verdict of from suffocation rendered.
Mr. Knorr was a laborer and
had resided in Vernon Center about one year and a half. He was 35 years
of age. His wife was also highly respected. A married daughter lives at
Trenton. The horrible fate of the family has thrown the village into a
state of gloomy excitement [?]. No other fire of importance has occured
in Vernon Center in 35 years. The cause of the fire is still unknown. The
house was a frame structure and valued at about $1000, which Mr. Cody will
lose by the fire.
