Storage Trailer Destroyed, Dry Run Gets Fire Engine

On March 10, 1927 it was reported in The Shippensburg Chronicle that a fire engine had been purchased by Dry Run citizens, giving the town adequate fire protection. I will post more on early fire protection in Path Valley at another time.

On March 10, 1987 at 12:30 a.m. firefighters were alerted for to a fire at Millhouse Salvage yard, Hopewell Township. Fire destroyed a trailer used for storage after a spark from a welder’s torch used earlier in the day set the underside on fire. Firefighters from four companies were on the scene for 1-¼ hours. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose, Cumberland Valley Hose and West End Fire and Rescue companies assisted at the scene.
