James David Yarbrough, 84, resident of Newcastle was burned to death in an accident caused by a fire and exploding gasoline.

The younger Yarbrough had taken a pan of gasoline into the house to clean a generator and placed it in front of the fireplace.

The explosion followed, and the elder Yarbrough was fatally burned as he sat in a rocking chair in front of the fireplace. It was impossible to get the body out of the house until the fire was almost over. The blaze was out of control when firemen arrived. Interior walls and furnishings of the home were destroyed, leaving on the rock walls standing.

Mrs. Yarbrough, his wife, was in another part of the house and escaped injury.

J.D. and Sarah Yarbrough moved to Newcastle in 1936 from Leon, Oklahoma. He was a former night watchman for Newcastle for the city police force.

Survivors: wife; children - Mrs. Bessie Irene Graves of Palo Pinto; Mrs. Johnnie Williams of Newcastle, Mrs. RoseBelle Gilmore of Graham, James Yarbrough of Newcastle and Cecil Yarbrough of McAlester, OK.
