Fatal Accident

Nashville Globe
1 Mar 1907

Last Monday morning Carrie Cleveland, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Cleveland of Salem and Albion streets, was playing near a stove when the dress of the little child caught fire and before the flumes could be extinguished she was so badly burned that there were no hopes of saving her lift.  The little sufferer lingered until just after last nightfall when death put an end to her aflictions.  The funeral services were solemnized Tuesday and a large number of friends were present.
