Auto Spark Possible Cause Of Fire
Fatal To Four At Plant In Hudson
Hudson, Ohio—Firemen say explosions that killed four persons Thursday at a propane gas plant could have been touched off by a spark from the automobile in which three of the victims were riding.
Mrs. Bonnie Blachly, 30, of Hudson, and her daughters, Audre, 3, and Paula, 2, were in the automobile passing the Fuelgas Corp. plant in Hudson when the first explosions rocked the area.
Witnesses reported seeing mist which firemen said could have been caused by gas leaking from a loading dock.
“ I saw a fog enveloping the whole area,” said Edward C. Jestromb manager of a neighborhood furniture store. Jestromb said he saw the Blachly’s Volkswagon “start into the fog. When the car got in, the whole fog ignited.”
Robert Blachly, 31, who was in the car with his wife and children, was burned seriously. William A. Jones, operator of a service a few hundred yards away, said he found Blachly sitting on some batteries shortly after the first explosion.
“He didn’t have any clothes on,” Jones said, “and he was bent over, not saying anything.”
The fourth person killed was O. C. Williams, 46, service manager of Fuelgas Corp.
Three Fuelgas buildings were destroyed by the 30 to 40 explosions, and Fire Chief Richard Myers estimated damage at $250,000.
Police said they believed propane gas leaked from a broken line on a truck that had just been filled with gas.
Firemen said the initial blast could have been touched off by a spark from Blachly’s car or by an overhead system in a garage near the loading dock of from some other source.

Old-time members of the National Genealogical Society will remember a tall, bald man in a Navy officer's uniform, whose smile and hearty handshake exuded warmth and cordiality, and whose booming voice infected his hearers with the same enthusiasm for genealogical research and for extending the spheres of the influence of the society.
This was Ben F. Dixon, a native of Kahoka, Missouri, and a long-time resident of San Diego, California. It is with deep regret that we received word of his death at his home, 6008 Arosa Street, San Diego, on Saturday, 27 June 1970, at the age of 78.
In his adopted city he was Curator of the Junipero Serra Museum in Presido Park, 1949-1955, and for 11 years taught history at Adult Evening School. He started the Walking Tours of the Old Town. He was a member of the Squibob Chapter of E Clampas Vitus, an organization founded in the Gold Rush Days by men who like to mix history and fun. In 1968 on a visit to Washington (D C), he addressed the Society on the historical and genealogical work being accomplished in San Diego.
His publications included "Contributions of Haiti to the Independence of the United States, 1776-1826" (1950), which won an award from the Haitian Government; "Diario, The Journal of Padre Serra " (editor; 2nd edition, 1967), and with Mrs Dixon, "Five Generations of American Dwelles" (1960).
The Society extends its deepest sympathy to his widow, the former Alice L. Dwelle; his sons Dale and John and his daughter Mary Alice Six grand children also survive. Burial was in Greenwood Mausoleum. Milton Rubincam.
