Bakersfield, Cal., April 12 (AP) - Two children burned to death and two women received probably fatal injuries when their automobile exploded at a service station east of here last night shortly after a lantern was placed near the gasoline tank of the car. Fire that followed the blast destroyed the automobile, filling station and a house.

MRS. EARL STEARNS and MRS. CECIL D. AGEN, both of Stockton an two of their children occupied the car. Their husbands, who were in a nearby machine, were unable to reach the children and rescued the women only after they were severely burned.
