Amberson Road Barn Burns

On June 5, 1991 at 2:01 p.m. firefighters were alerted to a barn fire at 20660 Amberson Road, Fannett Township. Upon arrival of the first units the barn was well involved and already falling to the ground. Firefighters concentrated their efforts on protecting nearby exposures. Lost in the blaze were several pieces of machinery and some crops. Damages were estimated at $10,000. About 60 firefighters from Fannett-Metal, Pleasant Hall, Letterkenny, Vigilant Hose, West End Fire and Rescue, Newburg-Hopewell, Shade Gap and Metal Townships battled the blaze. Fannett-Metal firefighters were called back later in the evening when some hay rekindled.
