House Addition Severely Damaged By Fire

On November 23, 1972 at 1:11 p.m. firemen responded to Route 997 two miles north of Newburg for a house fire. A fire of unknown origin destroyed an addition on a 2-½-story log home. One firefighter was treated and released from the hospital with injuries after he fell from a ladder. A damage estimate was not available. Firemen remained on the scene for two hours. The Vigilant Hose Company assisted at the scene.

Later in the afternoon all three-borough fire companies responded to a truck fire on Interstate 81 between exits 9 and 10.
