Letterkenny Twp. House Burns

On November 11, 2000 at 11:30 p.m. firefighters were sent to 3377 Keefer Road Letterkenny Township for a house fire. A faulty installed wood-burning stove started a fire that caused heavy damage to a large occupied 2-½-story frame and log house. The blaze began in the second floor and extended to the attic and roof quickly. When firefighters arrived the fire was through the roof. Firefighters had to shuttle water from a hydrant two miles away. Approximately 75 firefighters from 10 companies battled the blaze for four hours. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose Company assisted at the scene.
