Spark From Stove Causes Fire

On January 13, 1981 at 9:18 a.m. firefighters responded to Oakville, North Newton Township for a house fire. A spark from a wood stove found its way out of the cracked flue to set fire to the floor in the basement. The fire quickly spread through the voids of the 2-½-story balloon frame house. Firefighters from four companies battled the blaze for over two hours. Damages were estimated at $10,000 to $12,000. The Vigilant Hose and Cumberland Valley Hose companies assisted at the scene.
