The New York Reformer, Thursday, April 8, 1858, Page 1:

Horrible---Five Persons Burned to Death

The dwelling house of Daniel Comstock, of Philadelphia, was consumed by fire on Sunday night last. Himself and four children perished in the flames! Mrs. Comstock was at Auburn under medical treatment and thus escaped the destruction, which in this most afflicting manner, has overtaken the other members of the family. The remains of Mr. Comstock were found lying across a tin box in which it is said were his money and valuable papers. The presumption is that he went from his bed below, up stairs, where this box was kept, and became suffocated with smoke and flame before he could make his exit. His children slept up stairs, and in regard to their father's efforts to save them all conjecture is but random guess work. The first must have taken as early as nine o'clock in the evening, as a light as of a burning building was seen in that direction by people at Sanfords Corners as early as nine.
