Pole Barn Burns On Fogelsanger Road

On June 13, 1992 at 1:47 a.m. firefighters were alerted for a barn fire at 125 Fogelsanger Road, Southampton Cumberland. When firefighters arrived they discovered rolls of hay burning in the barn. Approximately 75 to 100 firefighters from six companies worked for over six hours to remove and extinguish 150 round bails of hay from the building. According to reports the building was destroyed. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose, Cumberland Valley Hose and West End Fire and Rescue companies answered the alarm.

In the last few days I have had numerous people surf onto the site by searching John Snyder's name. Part of the discussion in the comments section of a previous post was when did John pass away. John died on August 9, 1975 at the young age of 35. John and the Snyder family were very close friends of ours and his passing was a huge loss for me. I guess I am posting this to answer the questions in the previous comments and to find out if you would like me to wait until August or post about John sooner. I have nothing ready for Sunday yet and can post about him then if you would like.
