Heat Lamp Causes Barn Fire

On October 31, 2000 at 1209 p.m. firefighters were dispatched to 65 Chamberlin Road for a barn fire. A fire caused by a heat lamp caused extensive damage to a 150 X 50 foot barn. Firefighters from seven companies had the blaze under control in 30 minutes and were on the scene two hours. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose, Cumberland Valley Hose and West End Fire and Rescue companies battled the blaze. Earlier in the morning the CV’s answered an AFA on Frey Road, later in the evening WEFR answered a working barn fire in St. Thomas Township followed by all three Shippensburg companies answering another working barn fire on the Pine Stump Road. Those two working fires can wait to be posted in the future.
