George Redden. Raleigh Register (Beckley, WV) 8 Jan 1958 Ex-Soldier Burns To Death as Fire Destroys Ghent Home. A delayed trip to the home of his parents cost a 22-year-old man his life today in an early morning fire at Ghent. George Redden, recently discharged from the army, burned to death in a 4 a. m. fire that destroyed the four-room house rented by his brother-in-law, and sister, Mr. and Mrs. Elsworth Hutchins. The victim reportedly had planned to leave the Hutchin's home Tuesday for the residence of his parents at Marfrance, Greenbrier County, but due to weather and road conditions he delayed the trip and spent the fatal evening in Hutchin's home. Redden was sleeping in the only upstairs bedroom when the fire struck. Hutchins, his wife, and their three small children were sleeping downstairs. Hutchins reportedly attempted to reach the victim, but his rescue attempts were thwarted when his sleeve and hair caught fire. Persons attracted to the scene said they heard Redden struggling upstairs, but did not see him nor hear him scream out. Two Raleigh County Deputies Sheriffs arrived at the scene about 10:30 a. m. where they found Redden's remains intact. The deputies placed Redden's remains in a container for transportation to a funeral home. A neighbor seen at the scene said Redden's body could have been saved intact if removed when it was found. However, no one moved the body and by the time the Sheriff's Office received the call, it had been reduced to ashes. State Police answered an earlier call, but said the heat prevented them from reaching the body. The only belongings saved from the fire included a television set, chair, and sewing machine. The children were taken to the Farley Ridge home of Hutchin's parents early this morning. Redden, who spent Tuesday evening with his girl friend, reportedly had been staying at the home of his sister and brother-in-law "off and on since his release from the army.
