Lower Mifflin Barn Burns

On August 12, 2001 at 1:29 a.m. firefighters responded to a barn fire at 101 Meadows Road, Lower Mifflin Township. When firefighter arrived the 30-by-60 foot metal building was well involved. The main barn and equipment shed was only about 20 yards away from the burning structure but firefighters were able to save both buildings. One firefighter was treated for heat exhaustion. Firefighters from seven companies had the blaze contained in 15 minutes and remained on the scene until 3:23 a.m. It was believed the fire was started by an electrical problem. Damages were estimated at $60,000. The Cumberland Valley Hose Company assisted at the scene.

That same morning the Vigilant Hose and West End Fire and Rescue companies answered an auto accident at Rt. 641 and Quigley Roads.
