Huckleberryland House Burns Down

On March 21, 1940 at 11:00 p.m. firemen were sent to Huckleberryland, Southampton Cumberland for a house fire. A fire of undetermined origin caused almost complete destruction of an occupied two-story frame house and a smokehouse to the rear. The buildings were so far gone by the time firemen arrived that they concentrated their efforts on protecting the exposures. Firemen obtained their water from a cellar excavation that filled with water from melting snow and spring rains. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose Company answered the alarm.
