Franklin Heights Garage Damaged By Fire

On February 13, 1927 at 4:30 p.m. neighbors discovered a garage on fire owned by John Ickes on Franklin Heights. Items stored to close to a furnace pipe caused a fire that badly damaged a garage and its contents. Firefighters were able to prevent the spread to other nearby buildings. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose and Cumberland Valley Hose companies answered the alarm.

If any one has any old photographs of the Shippensburg Fire Deaprtment or surronding area they would like to share with the site and viewers please send them along and I will put them on. I have gotten good comments from the ones Pat Shoop sent and I have a few more of his to post in the future. Thanks Brad.
