Mobile Hose Destroyed, Occupant Killed

On December 18, 2001 at 6:09 a.m. a Shippensburg box was dispatched for a mobile home fire at 15 Dykeman Road in Shippensburg Township. A candle left burning on a wooden bookshelf sparked a blaze that killed the 38-year-old male occupant and destroyed the mobile home. Firefighters had the blaze under control in 15 minutes and out in 30 minutes. One firefighter suffered second degree burns in a rescue attempt before the arrival of fire apparatus. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose, Cumberland Valley Hose and West End Fire and Rescue companies answered the alarm.
