Burns were Fatal.
Cedar Falls, June 17.—Andrew Peterson, the 18-year-old boy who was burned so seriously in Wm. Otts’ resturant the other day, died this morning from the effects of his injuries. Peterson was burned last Tuesday by igniting his clothing which had become saturated with gasoline while filling a stove, and his death was the effect of inhaling the flames.
Transcriber’s Note: Find a Grave shows he was born in 1880 and is buried in Greenwood Cemetery.
