Airport Road House Damaged By Fire

On January 28, 1976 at 11:16 a.m. firefighters responded to a house fire on the Airport Road just outside of Cleversburg at the Bessie Coy residence (for the old timers they will remember Bessie and her weekly column in the News Chronicle). A fire of undetermined origin started in the kitchen of the two and a half story frame house and spread quickly. Firefighters worked for almost an hour to control the blaze and remained on the scene until after 3:15 p.m. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose, Cumberland Valley Hose and West End Fire and Rescue companies operated at the scene. At 4:40 a.m. the next morning the Viggies and WEFR returned for a rekindle in the roof of the house.

Today's post is a day late because I was out of town, yesterday's and today's have both been added, check the date at the beginning of the paragraph.
