Attic Fire Damages Southampton Cumberland Home

On June 21, 1981 at 7:52 p.m. neighbors noticed smoke coming from the roof of a house on Whitehouse Road, Southampton Cumberland and alerted 911. When firefighters arrived they found fire in the attic of the one story frame house. By the time firefighters from three companies were able to contain the blaze the attic was destroyed with smoke, water and overhaul damage to the living areas. Two firefighters were injured during the blaze, one suffered smoke inhalation and the other received a cut above his eye. A damage estimate was not available, and firefighters remained on the scene over two hours. The Vigilant Hose and Cumberland Valley Hose air wagon answered the alarm.
