Barn Destroyed Near Doylesburg

On November 18, 2006 at 2:11 p.m. Box 12-01 was sent to the Path Valley Road, Fannett Township for a barn fire. A fire of undetermined origin destroyed a barn and its contents. Firefighters from numerous companies operated at the scene for almost three hours. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose, Cumberland Valley Hose and West End Fire and Rescue companies assisted at the scene.

**On a side note, I was informed on Saturday that Richard "Dick" Holtry was taken to the hospital again last week and that he is not doing well. Anyone familiar with Shippensburg knows Dick and his almost six decade dedication to the fire service. Please keep Dick and his family in your prayers and thoughts.

Please send my best to Dick and the family. Or, if possible, post an address where those of us from the hinterlands can drop him a card. Thanks.
