Three children and the parents escaped. Severely burned about the face and arms, the injured father told firemen, “I must have used the wrong can.” When Thomas Samuel Turner, Sr., 38, attempted to kindle a cast iron stove this morning toe stove exploded and the chimney collapsed. Turner, despite his burns and an injured right leg, managed to get three of his seven slec|ii> ing children out of the roaring inferno. The four others, three girls and a boy ranging in age from 15 months to six years, died as the story-and-a-haH house went up in flames. Dead are: Quinn Turner, a 15-month-old girl; Timmy, age two; Lisa, age three; Rhonda, age six. Treated and released at Highlands Community Hospital were Paul Edward Turner, age four; Thomas Samuel Turner Jr., age five, and Cheryl K., seven. The father was admitted to the hospital for treatment of his injuries. Firemen said they believed Turner may have picked up a can of gasoline by mistake, thinking it was kerosene, and threw it on the hot coals in toe heating stove.
