1957 - Mother, Child Die In Fire

Walpole, Mass - January 3

"My God, the house is on fire. I'm trapped."

A few moments after shouting that frantic alarm into the telephone, Mrs. Doris DANEHEY, 30, and her only child, James 4 months, perished Wednesday night in their three room bungalow.

Fire Chief Aaron Hill said Mrs. DANEHEY apparently passed up her only chance to escape by making a valiant attempt to save the baby.
