Deadly gas

The October 17 1927 edition of the Toronto Daily Star contained two separate stories about people killed or injured by gas fumes in their home.

In the first, there appear to have been no casualties:


The second one, unfortunately, was more tragic:


I tried to trace Mrs. Partridge in the Toronto city directories, but with no luck. 228 Mutual Street is not listed in either the 1927 or 1928 directory, and I couldn’t find anyone named Partridge at an address similar to this. So I’m not sure whether this actually happened.
