Agnes lived right across the road, she heard her mother screaming, and saw flames shooting from the house. Agnes carried a ladder over and placed it against the house, her mother went back to rescue her grandson, William Gaines, age 5 (NOTE - 2 different ages appeared in this article). Agnes never saw her mother again. When Agnes attempted to climb the ladder, she was driven back by the flames. She, Agnes, was burned about the face, arms and legs.
Will Lanager, who had one arm, was a border. The bodies were very difficult to identify. They were turned over to a Show Shoe undertaker.
The house was estimated to be about 75 years old and was owned by George Moriarty, of 5th Street, Renovo, valued at $2,500. The house is located in New Garden, Clinton County, about 3 miles on this side of Pottersdale. Blanch had lived in the house for the past 4 or 5 years.
