Sad and lamentable news from Old-Street being a full and true relation of a sad and deplorable accident that happened at a Dyers House in Old-Street on Sunday the 8th. of this instant March, at night. Where a nurse, and two maid-servants, sitting up late to make merry by themselves, and making a very large fire, all of char-coal, in a close room, they were therewith smothered, and their spirits so suffocated, that they continued there all night; and being found next morning, two of them were stark dead, beyond recovery: the third with much ado, was brought to life again, but remains very weak
