      Ceilings in four of the rooms were badly damaged.
      Mrs. JONES, who was alone in the house, said "It was like the explosion of a shell -- a terrible experience.
      "In an instant the house was filled with thick greyish smoke.
      "Parts of the chimney collapsed into the dining room. Soot and pieces of brick were scattered all over the place."
      A neigbour, Mrs. E. EDGOOSE, said she saw the fireball sweep over her home and hit the chimney of Mrs. Jones's house.
