Fire Damages TKE House In Shippensburg Township

On February 26, 1983 at 4:47 a.m. a passing motorist alerted Shippensburg Police to a fire at the TKE fraternity house on Middle Spring Avenue, Shippensburg Township. When firefighters arrived smoke and flames were venting from a window on the first floor side 2 of the structure. An arson fire gutted a first floor room in the 30 by 80 foot two-story brick occupied building. The remainder of the first floor suffered heat and smoke damage and the second floor sustained smoke damage. Firefighters were on the scene almost two hours. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose, Cumberland Valley Hose and West End Fire and Rescue companies battled the blaze.

The CV pancake add appeared in the Shippensburg New Chronicle on February 26, 1972.
