Fire Damages Upper Strasburg House

On December 14, 2000 at 12:34 a.m. firefighters were dispatched to 10,726 Upper Strasburg Road for a house fire. A four-year-old boy playing with matches sparked a blaze that caused extensive damage to a 1-1/2 story house. The fire damaged a bedroom and kitchen and caused smoke and water damage to the remainder of the home. Firefighters from six companies battled the blaze. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose, Cumberland Valley Hose and West End Fire and Rescue companies assisted at the scene.

Pat Shoop sent the photograph for today's post. Pat said the photo was taken in 1969 when he was one year old. I would assume his father, long time Vigilant member Mick took the photo. Pat is sitting on Buzzy Naugles lap in the radio room, KGD 556 located in the Municipal Building (Vigilant Hose), Shippensburg. Pat also sent four other photos that I will use at a later date. Thanks Pat.
