On March 6, 1951, Parker had to abandon her sickbed and flee with her two small children when a fire broke out in her Beverly Hills home. She was in bed with the flu when she was aroused by the smell of smoke. She took her daughters, Susan, 3, and Sharon, 1, and left the house. The blaze destroyed a staircase and a wall, with damages estimated at $500.
