Arson Fire Guts Downtown Apartment

November 23, 1989 at 2:07 a.m. a Thanksgiving morning arson fire forced 11 people from their apartments at 34 North Earl Street. The blaze was set in the first floor apartment and caused extensive damage to that unit and slight fire damage to the unit above. The other two apartments sustained smoke damage. Firefighters had the fire under control in 30 minutes and remained on the scene until 5:50 a.m. A damage estimate was not available. Later in the evening the companies worked a job in Lurgan Township, but that is another post. The Vigilant Hose, Cumberland Valley Hose and West End Fire and Rescue companies operated at the scene.
