1878 - Strange Fire
The wife of a hard working German farmer at Woodbridge, Conn., during her husband's absence last Saturday, accidentally set her clothes on fire. She rushed to the stable and threw herself on to the hay, in the vain hope of extinguishing the flames. The stable was set on fire and consumed, and the woman ended her misery by jumping into a well.
