House Damaged In Accidental Fire

On December 17, 1963 at 2:30 p.m. KGD-556 dispatched Shippensburg monitors to a house fire in Hays Grove. A fire started in the kitchen and quickly spread to the second floor and attic of a 2-½-story frame dwelling. The origin was believed to be electrical. Firemen were on the scene over two hours. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose Company assisted the Friendship Fire Company of Newville and the Penn Twp. Fire Co. at the scene.

At 8:30 a.m. the Vigilant and Cumberland Valley Hose Companies operated at a working for on South Penn Street extended (that post is for another year) and at 12:37 p.m. the Viggies answered a chimney fire in Lurgan.
