Walnut Bottom House Damaged

On February 21, 2000 at 4:40 p.m. firefighters were dispatched to 42 East Main Street, Walnut Bottom for a house fire. Faulty wiring in a wall between a bedroom and living room caused heavy damage to an occupied 1-1/2 story frame house. Firefighters from five companies had the blaze under control in 15 minutes and remained on the scene over two hours. Damages were estimated at $60,000. The Vigilant Hose, Cumberland Valley Hose and West End Fire and Rescue companies assisted at the scene.

It just happened by accident that this post was ready for today and the companies worked a job in the 49 box overnight on Wagner Road, just off Ritner Highway for a house fire. I get hits on here everyday from a few people from Walnut Bottom if you would like to comment on the Wagner Road fire.

IT WAS COLD... And moved lots of water. Thanks to all the area tankers.

Took the pumper to the fish hatchery and filled ~30-35 tankers. Brad, you could have gotten some nice pics- ice hanging off from everything and the pretty glare of a FD-made ice skating rink. The game the way it's supposed to be played- iced-up mustaches and frozen hose. Always a good time!

Thanks guys, I should have come down and shot photographs of firefighters in action, one of those nights that I could not go to sleep so I sat up and listened to the call online. If I didn't have to work I could have drank myself to sleep. TJ there comes a time that that kind of fun just becomes work and not so much fun. You will get there some day.
