1927: Auto Warns Owner His Garage is Ablaze

Middletown, Conn., July 18 (AP)–Samuel Bridge was warned by his automobile that something was amiss in his garage, but the warning came too late. Sam was in the arms of morpheus when the long and continued blowing of the horn on his car awakened him and drew his attention to his garage which was ablaze. The flames had short-circuited the wires on the horn and thus the warning, but although firemen saved part of the garage, the faithful car was destroyed.
