Chambersburg House Burns

On November 15, 2004 at 1241 a.m. 941 Nelson Street, Chambersburg. A woman escaped her burning home by climbing from a second floor window, one pet died and three others needed to be taken to a veterinarian. The fire started on the first floor of the 2-1/2-story brick house and caused extensive damage before being controlled. Firefighters from nine companies battled the two-alarm blaze and remained on the scene until 3 a.m. Damages were estimated at $50,000. The West End Fire and Rescue Company assisted at the scene. A couple of years later this same couple would be burnt out again when a $1.2 million dollar fire would destroy their new house shortly before it was completed.
