Zentner, Augusta (Burning Death – 1918)

Racine – Mrs. Augusta Zentner, 70 years old, who for more than thirty years has lived as a recluse in Burlington, was burned to death in her home. The charred body of the woman was found in the ruins, also broken pieces of a lamp. The woman had been ill with influenza and it is thought while preparing medicine she knocked over the lamp, igniting her clothing.
