Kennedy Street House Burns

On July 19, 2001 at 8:24 a.m. a Company 1 box was alerted for a house fire at 168 Kennedy Street, Chambersburg. When firefighters arrived they had heavy fire in 168 and 166. Firefighters from five companies had the blaze under control in 10 minutes and remained on the scene for four hours. 166 and 168 were gutted and 172 sustained broken windows and damage to the siding. A damage estimate was not available. The West End Fire and Rescue Company assisted at the scene.

The photograph is the Vigilant Hose Company No. 1, Shippensburg, Pa. circa 1959.

I am glad to see the post worked, this was a scheduled post that I did in advance. As long as they keep working you will have the rest of the week without interuption. Should it fail or I did something wrong then you are SOL.
