It also was Papa's Birthday.

Wednesday, December 29, 1948
On Dec. 29. We had a fire in our bedroom in Auburn.
Papa smoked in bed. The curtain caught afire. I was in the kitchen starting breakfast
Thursday, December 30, 1948
It was 7:30. I heard some strange yells and went in the dinning room. Saw the room all lit up, the blanket was burning. I reached over and smothered out the fire on his head, rolled up the comforter. Papa was pulling down the curtain and trying to trample out the fire with his shoes. But did not notice the bed was also afire. It would have gotten out of control if I had not come in. The window blind was ablaze too. I tore it off bracket and all. Papa has 5 sore spots on his head. 3 blisters on his wrists.
