Richeson, the off-duty fire- man with 33 years oil the force, lives near the Baldwin home. He smelled smoke and stepped out- side. Seeing the Baldwin home ablaze, Richeson shouted to his wife to call the fire department, then dashed io the scene. Unhesitatingly, Hicheson bashed in the front door and started crawling his stomach toward the kitchen just like firemen a.re {aught in rescue work. But before he got very far, sev- eral men who trailed Richeson to the burning home, spied his legs from Ihe doorway and jerked him outside, apparently thinking Ihey were rescuing him. Undaunted, Richeson dashed to the back door and smashed it in. But he was too late as the vicious flames pushed him back. Questioned later about being thwarted in his rescue mission, Rieheson said: "1 guess they didn't think I knew what I was doing." Firemen believed the fire start- ed when Mrs. Baldwin's clothes caught fire from an open heater.
