Greene Township Home Burns

On February 14, 1996 at 5:27 p.m. firefighters were called to a home at 470 Anthony Highway, Greene Township for a fire. An overloaded electrical outlet in a first floor bedroom sparked a blaze that caused heavy damage to an occupied 2-½-story balloon frame house. The fire extended rapidly through the walls to the second floor and attic before being contained by firefighters from eight companies. Firefighters were on the scene until 8:37 p.m. Damages were estimated at $100,000. The West End Fire and Rescue Company assisted at the scene along with units from Fayetteville, Franklin, Mont Alto, New Franklin, Waynesboro, South Mountain, Letterkenny and the Franklin County Air unit.
