Bank Barn And Contents Destroyed

On January 26, 1922 in the early evening hours, one mile north of Shippensburg, Southampton Cumberland; a fire of undetermined origin that began in the loft of a bank barn completely destroyed the building and its contents. Lost in the fire were a calf, some chickens, feed, machinery, a hog pen and wagon shed. Damages were estimated at $6,000. The Cumberland Valley Hose Company battled the blaze with their American LaFrance Junior combination engine.
