Dover, NJ House Fire, Nov 1969

FIRE KILLS 7 CHILDREN.

Dover, N.J. (AP) -- Seven children burned to death
Sunday when fire swept their house as they slept.
The victims, seven of the nine children of MR. and MRS. JOSEPH JACQUISH, were MICHELLE, 2; FREDERICK, 3; HOPE, 5; LAURIE ANN, 6; JEANNE, 8; NANCY, 11; PATRICIA, 12.
The parents and two other children, JUDITH, 10, and EDWARD, 7, escaped unhurt.
A neighbor said, "We heard a lot of screaming but didn't realize the kids were sleeping in the back."
Cause of the fire in the three-story frame structure
was not immediately known, fire officials said.
