Busy Day For Shippensburg Firefighter’s

On August 11, 2006 at 6:06 a.m., Franklin County 911 alerted units to a house fire at 3464 Troon Drive, Greene Township. Spontaneous combustion in mulch piled along the exterior of a townhouse caused a fire that burnt up the outside wall and extended into the attic before being stopped by firefighters. Approximately 50 firefighters from five companies were able to contain the blaze quickly. The West End Fire and Rescue and C.V. Hose companies assisted at the scene.

Earlier in the day at 3:42 a.m. the Cumberland Valley Hose Company’s air wagon assisted on a house fire at 63 H Street Carlisle. Later that day at 3:59 p.m. the Vigilant Hose, Cumberland Valley Hose and West End Fire and Rescue companies responded to a kitchen fire at 138 Meadow Drive, Roxbury Ridge Apartments. The fire started on the stove and traveled into the cabinets and across the ceiling before being extinguished by firefighters.

If you are counting today's entry give me 300 post on the SFD site. Within the next two month both sites will celebrate their first anniversary.

We are all here. Just speechless about the whole thing. Keep it going. I know Steve Austin thinks this is one of the greatest Fire Dept. history sites in the country.
