Restaurant Destroyed By Fire

On May 28, 1996 at 1:34 a.m. firefighters were alerted to a building fire at Nick’s Chicken and Seafood House, 1524 Lincoln Way East. When firefighters arrived the building was already heavily involved with flames through the roof. Firefighters from nine companies had the blaze under control in about 30 minutes and remained on the scene about four hours. Two firefighters were treated for minor injuries after one-stepped on a nail and the other smashed his thumb. A damage estimate was not available but the building was a total loss. The Chambersburg Fire Department, New Franklin, Fayetteville, Marion, West End Fire and Rescue, Cumberland Valley Hose Company, Pleasant Hall, Mont Alto and Franklin fire companies battled the blaze.

The Cumberland Valley add appeared in a 1983 news paper.

Nick's Chicken and Seafood House was a great place to eat. I always liked the big Chicken that stood out front.

Didn't the vigilants transfer to either the franklins or Co. 7 for this incident.

My guess is they transferred someplace, but I don't keep track of transfers and only log them in the data base if they are included in the article.
