Man Dies In Morning Fire

On January 21, 1970 at 11:40 a.m. firemen responded to a house fire at Shippensburg R. D. 4, Cleversburg. An electrical short sparked a blaze that damaged an occupied 2-½-story frame house killing one occupant and injuring another. Firefighters from three companies battled the blaze for more than an hour in freezing temperatures and drifting snow. The house sustained heavy damage from fire, smoke and water. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose Company stations 1 & 2 and the West End Fire and Rescue Company answered the alarm.
