Business Destroyed On Roxbury Road

On February 15, 2006 at 12:52 a.m. Franklin County 911 toned out for a building fire at 1461 Roxbury Road, Southampton Franklin. A fire linked to a wood stove caused heavy damage to a tool sharpening business. The building 28 feet square and 1-1/2-stories tall was attached to a larger garage that was also attached to the house. Firefighters from seven companies were able to contain the fire to the workshop in minutes. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose, Cumberland Valley Hose and West End Fire and Rescue companies answered the alarm along with units from Pleasant Hall, South Newton, Fayetteville and the Franklin's.

During the day companies also responded to two auto accidents, three automatic fire alarms, a working barn fire and a transfer. With eight runs and two working fires for the day, Shippensburg firefighters were kept very busy.
