Vigilant’s Answer Barn Fire

On June 17, 1933 in the afternoon hours a large bank barn on the highway from Newville to Newburg was burnt to the ground. The cause of the fire was unknown. A hog pen and chicken house were also destroyed. Firemen secured water from a nearby stream but the buildings were to far gone to save. The Vigilant Hose Company answered the alarm.
