Chicken House Destroyed Almost 200 Chickens Lost

On May 10, 1929 at about 7 p.m. a call was sent for the Cumberland Valley Hose Company to respond to Lees Cross Roads for a fire. A large chicken house, 32 feet by 16 feet was ablaze and threatening a house near by. The blaze started in a brooder stove and completely destroyed the building killing between 100 and 200 chickens. A damage estimate was not available.
