Barn Destroyed In Cleversburg

On October 27, 1928 in the evening hours local firemen were sent to Cleversburg for a barn fire. A fire possibly intentionally set destroyed a large barn and its contents. Four or five pieces of farm machinery and the hay crop stored for the winter were all lost with the barn. Firemen pumped water from a nearby stream in an effort to save the surrounding buildings. Damages were estimated at $10,000. The Vigilant Hose and Cumberland Valley Hose companies answered the alarm.
