Granton (Cox Fire - 1963)
The Granton Fire Department was called Friday to the Ervin Cox home, where a gas stove exploded as Mrs. Cox turned on the burner. Mr. Cox, a teacher in the Granton School, had left for school at the time of the explosion. There were no injuries, but damage was done to a refrigerator that was charred and smoke-and-water damage.
Mrs. Cox and two children were cared for at the Francis Steiner home. A faulty regulator was believed to have caused the explosion.
