1932 :: Fruit Jar Explosions



Two Rockdale women were quite severely scalded last week by the explosion of glass fruit jars while engaged in canning vegetables in a pressure cooker. Mrs. Ben Fiesler was burned Saturday, and also received a painful wound under the chin from the flying glass. The day previous, Mrs. Bud Caywood suffered a similar accident, when the top blew off of a jar just taken from the cooker. While both ladies received painful burns, their injuries were not serious.
