Storage Barn Destroyed In Greene Twp.

On October 20, 2003 at 12:54 p.m. Franklin County 911 alerted units to 5642 Lincoln Way East, Greene Township for a barn fire. A fire of undetermined origin destroyed a two-story 60-by-30 foot barn used for storage. Firefighters from six companies operated at the scene for three hours. One-firefighter suffered minor injuries. Damages were estimated at $40,000. The Vigilant Hose Company assisted at the scene. Earlier in the morning Shippensburg firefighters responded to the Walnut Bottom Road for an auto accident with entrapment and later in the day firefighters answered another mva to I-81 in Southampton Cumberland that killed two men.
