A large villa at Cornelly, Pyle, the property of the Margam Estate, and the residence of Mr. BURT and family, was completely destroyed by fire early on Monday morning-only the shell of the outer wall remaining. It is presumed that the fire was caused by the explosion of an oil lamp alight in one of the bedrooms. The fire spread with amazing rapidity, and the occupants had to flee for their lives-the whole of their personal effects being consumed. The heat was intense and the window panes melted in a stream. There was no water supply attatched to the premises and the nearest water hydrant was two miles away at Kenfig Hill. It is extremely fortunate that the prevailing wind wind blew from the west, otherwise the Cornelly Council Schools, near by, must certsinly have been destroyed. The unfortunate family were housed by neighbours, who showed every consideration for their comfort.
