Firefighters’ Battle House Fire Twice

On March 20, 1998 at 10:59 a.m. a company 50 box was sent to 1821 Walnut Bottom Road, Penn Township for a house fire. A fire of undetermined origin gutted a bedroom on the second floor of an occupied 2-½-story frame house. Firefighters from four companies battled the blaze. A damage estimate was not available. The Cumberland Valley Hose Company assisted at the scene. At 1:59 p.m. firefighters were dispatched to the same address for a structure fire. First arriving units found heavy fire from the attic and second floor. The rekindle destroyed the second floor and attic. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose, Cumberland Valley Hose and West End Fire and Rescue companies assisted at scene of the second fire.

Does anyone out there remember this old Franklin County dispatchers patch? I purchased this a couple of months ago on eBay.
