Newburg RD 1 House Burns

On February 27, 1958 at 4:00 p.m. firemen were dispatched to Newburg R.D. 1 for a house fire. An overheated stove sparked a fire that destroyed a four-room house displacing a family of two. According to Chief Charles Mour firefighters were delayed some ten minutes in locating the blaze because the caller did not give good directions. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose Company answered the alarm.

Anybody that knew the late Charlie Mour knows he had a lot more to say then what was mentioned in the article. I used to love to sit out front on the bench and listen to the stories he and C.B. Ott would share.
