Apple Avenue Family Homeless

On January 19, 1964 at 3:15 a.m. firemen were dispatched to a house fire at North Apple Avenue. When firemen arrived the back of the one and a half story wood frame house was ablaze. Quick action by firefighters prevented the blaze from spreading. An oil fired cook stove used to keep the pipes from freezing overflowed causing the fire. Damages were estimated at $5,000. The Vigilant Hose, Cumberland Valley Hose and West End Fire and Rescue companies answered the alarm.
