Dairy Barn Destroyed

On September 23, 1978 at 9:30 p.m. firefighters were alerted to a barn fire on the Burnt Mill Road, Lurgan Twp. Franklin County. A diesel engine used to run a milking system caused a fire that destroyed a large dairy barn. Firefighters pumped water from a nearby stream for twelve hours. Firefighters had to remove hay by hand from the milking stable to save that area. Firefighters were able to save the milking stable and silo. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose Company assisted at the scene.

Those were the days my friend when we worked our butt off and loved it and had a milking barn to show for our labor.
