Manning, Frederick (1851–1915)

from Leader (Orange, NSW)

A fire broke out in premises occupied by Sid Marshall, a hairdresser, of Narrabri, shortly after midnight on Saturday. Before it was extinguished, the office of J. McDonald, solicitor, Marshalls saloon, another office and a large shed at the rear, were gutted. The Greyhound Hotel, adjoining the property, had a narrow escape, and caught in several places, but the fire fighters succeeded in extinguishing the flames.

After the fire was subdued, an old man named Frederick Manning was reported missing. It was known that he had a room adjoining Marshall's, and it was discovered later that he had perished in the flames. It is presumed that Manning was smoking in bed and had fallen asleep, and his pipe set the bedclothes on fire.
