On this day October 14

October 14, 1922 around 7:15 p.m. the cry of fire rang out in Shippensburg for a stable fire at 212 East Garfield Street. Two stables and their contents were destroyed in an arson fire. Firemen did excellent work in keeping the fire from spreading. About a half hour after firemen returned to their quarters they responded again to the same street for another stable fire. That stable was also destroyed and labeled arson. Damages were estimated at several hundred to one thousand dollars. The Vigilant Hose and Cumberland Valley Hose Companies answered the alarms.
