Following an explosion that blew out the front of the store operated by the Sixberry Harness Co. at Bayard, and set the structure on fire, Hy. Sixberry, the proprietor, was found lying unconscious on a pile of brick with severe cuts and bruises about the head. He was unable to offer any explanation as to the probable cause of the blaze. He said he had unlocked the door and started to enter when there was an explosion and he remembered no more.
