Penn Street Man Dies Of Smoke Inhalation

On June 25, 1942 at about 6 a.m. firemen responded to a fire on South Penn Street. When firemen arrived neighbors had removed an occupant to the outside of the house and threw a burning mattress and bedding out the second floor window. Firemen quickly extinguished the fire and members of the CV ambulance performed artificial respiration's for more than an hour on the man. The 42-year old male occupant died of smoke inhalation. The Vigilant Hose and Cumberland Valley Hose companies answered the alarm.
