A medic and 2 cooks died in a railroad box fire at Heming, France on 1/12/1945. One of them was most likely Marion Vancil. The cars were use for housing of men of Co. A, 750 ROB. The cause of the pre-dawn fire was never determined. Most of the cars housed 4 men with a round stove in the middle. The railroad I was in was about 4 cars away.

Thanks for adding more information about the incident. Marion Vancil was my uncle. We only knew that he died in the fire.
