Roxbury Home Damaged In Accidental Fire

On November 25, 1980 at 8:02 a.m. firefighters were alerted to Routes 997 and 641 in the village of Roxbury for a house fire. An electrical short started a fire that gutted a second floor room and extended to the attic of a large 2-½-story occupied brick dwelling. Minor smoke and water damage affected to remainder of the home. Firefighters had the blaze under control in 20 minutes and remained on the scene for over two hours. Three firefighters were treated at the scene for minor injuries. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose, Cumberland Valley Hose and West End Fire and Rescue companies assisted at the scene.

Earlier in the morning WEFR and CV’s assisted on a job in Greene Township, but that’s for another year.
