Fire In Attached Garage Damages House

On January 11, 2004 at 1:28 p.m. box 151-04 was alerted for a house fire at 108 Minnick Road Hopewell Township for a house fire. A fire caused by spontaneous combustion, when linseed oil soaked rags were left on a garage workbench destroyed an attached garage in an occupied 1-1/2-story frame dwelling. Before firefighters could control the blaze most of the roof was burnt off the house with extensive heat, smoke and water damage to the inside. Firefighters from five companies had the blaze under control in 30 minutes and remained on the scene for two and a half hours. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose, Cumberland Valley Hose and West End Fire and Rescue companies assisted at the scene.

In January 1995 the Jersey Shore Fire Company placed their 1968 CF Mack up for sale. The engine was a former WEFR rig replaced in 1989 with the E-One.

Thank you Jonesy, The company should have kept that piece. All the grief I went through buying the engine from Cresson. Wasn't going to let that cherry get away. With all the rehab we did, it was quite a rig.
