Cleversburg Road House Damaged

On February 13, 1969 at 2:15 p.m. firemen were dispatched to a house fire on the Cleversburg Road, three miles north of town. An accidental fire caused extensive damage to an occupied 2-½-story frame dwelling. Before firemen could control the blaze fire destroyed the attic and damaged two-second floor bedrooms. There was heavy water and smoke damage to the whole house. Firemen from four companies were on the scene three hours. Vigilant Hose Chief Charlie Myers suffered a cut from flying glass and was treated at Dr. Freeman’s office. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose Company Stations 1 & 2 and the West End Fire and Rescue Company battled the blaze with assistance from Newburg-Hopewell.
