It appears that some sparks from a burning scrub adjoining Higgins's property were blown on to the fodder house. Mrs. Higgins tried to rescue a chaff-cutter that was in danger of being burnt, and her dress caught fire. She received severe burns on the legs and lower part of the body. It is not expected that she will recover.
