On February 16, 1999 at 1:00 p.m. Franklin County 911 alerted firefighters to a house fire at 3042 Black Gap Road, Greene Township. A controlled burn spread to a one-story block and frame shed destroying the building and its contents; that included a tractor and two trailers. Approximately 20 firefighters from eight companies battled the fire for over two hours. Damages were estimated at $45,000.
