MOTHER AND 2 SONS BURNED BY HEATER
LOS ANGELES, June 22 - A 5 year-old was perhaps fatally burned and his mother and little brother were slightly burned late today when a gas heater exploded at the home of B. R. Russell on East fortieth street.
Calvin Russell aged 5, and his little brother Gene, aged 2 were playing on the kitchen floor while their mother, Mrs Kate Russell, aged 36, was preparing to give them a bath. The small gas heater exploded and set fire to the house. Almost instantly the kitchen was swept by the flames. Mrs. Russell picked up Gene in her arms and rushed outside. When she returned for Calvin the room was a mass of flames and for a moment she was driven back. However, the mother rushed into the house a second time and rescued her son.
