FIRE TRAGEDY TAKES, DOROTHY JENSEN, 7
Funeral services were conducted here Tuesday for Dorothy Marie Jensen, 7 year old daughter of Mr. & Mrs. Harvey Jensen, Rupert, who died in the Twin Falls hospital Sunday night where she had been taken for treatment of third degree burns sustained when her clothing caught on fire. She would have been 8 on April 8.
The child and some playmates were playing in a field south of Highway 25 near the hay mill Sunday afternoon. The children, en route home, stopped at a fire where Ed Rosecrans and a nephew were burning weeds on a ditch bank. The child's clothing ignited and she ran down the canal banks. Rosecrans succeeded in overtaking her and smothered out the flames. He rushed her to the Rupert hospital and from there she was taken to Twin Falls by ambulance.
