"Fire which crept into the Fallsburgh Cemetery while the funeral of Mrs. Edward Edwards was being conducted at her home in Fallsburgh, Saturday afternoon, destroyed the tent, artificial grass, lowering device and outside box which Lee Laidlaw, Hurleyville undertaker, had prepared for the burial of Mrs. Edwards. Cooperation of other undertakers with Mr. Laidlaw, however, after the damage was discovered, prevented delay of the same.
"The entire cemetery was burned over and monuments blackened before the flames were extinquished by John Eidle, Woodbourne fire warden and several helpers. The fire was said to have been a neglected grass fire which spread into the cemetery from adjoining fields."
