Camden, NJ Burned by Hot Coals, Dec 1900

Burned at an Open Grate

Two-year-old Irvin Lowper stood in front of an open grate range, at his parents' home, 1714 South Eighth street, Camden, yesterday, and gleefully looked on the hot coals that occasionally dropped down. One fell on his dress, and in a few moments he was a mass of flames. He was hurried to the Cooper Hospital, where little hopes are entertained for his recovery.
