Allegheny Furnace, PA House Fire, Jan 1912


Savings of Years, Singularly Hoarded, Lost as Dog Jumps.

Altoona, Pa., Jan. 9.---Playfully jumping on the table, a bull terrier upset a lighted lamp in the home of Stanley Galsky, at Allegheny Furnace, while the house, with all its contents, including the dog, was burned.

In a tin can, hidden in a bed, was $250, the savings of years, and this was also consumed. Frantic efforts were made to recover it before the house was doomed, but the flames drove Galsky back.
