Chandler, S.E., 1969. FIRE DEATHS IN THE SECOND QUARTER OF 1969. Fire Research Notes 779
A preliminary survey shows that 151 persons died in fires in the second quarter of 1969. One hundred and thirty-five of these were in England and Wales and 16 in Scotland. There were no fatal casualties in Northern Ireland. This is lower than the total for the first quarter of the year. Two fires involving oil heaters each led to the deaths of four children in Birmingham. A fire in Durham, caused by children playing, gave rise to five deaths.
