1912 - SAVES THREE TOTS IN HOUSE ABLAZE. Oficer Takes Litle Ones From Their Beds in Charlestown.
Three children of Mr. and Mrs. Frank E. Grant, all under 8 years of age, were taken from their beds on the first floor of the dwelling house at 88 Moulton street, Charlestown, by Patrolman T. B. S. Donahue of the City square station, shortly before 10 o'clock last night, when a lively fire was discovered in the cellar of the building.
The fire, which the police believe was of incendiary origin, started in the center of a pile of lumber.
The hallways and rooms of the building were filled with smoke when the alarm was sounded. The upper portion of the house is occupied by Mrs. John Gotsell and her two sons.
The house is owned by Stephen F. Morgan of 30 Moulton street, Charlestown.
