Earl Street Apartment Building Damaged

On June 27, 1944 at 5:30 p.m. firemen responded to a building fire at 32-34 North Earl Street. Firemen arrived to find in a second floor rear apartment. Companies operated over two hours extinguishing the blaze and keeping it from spreading to all the tightly packed frame buildings in the area. Fire gutted the rear of the building with damages estimated at $1,000 to the structure, loss to furnishings was said to run very high. Considerable water damage was suffered in the apartment below the fire. The Vigilant Hose and Cumberland Valley Hose companies operated at the scene under the direction of borough chief Mont Witter.

Same problem, this post was scheduled for an hour and a half ago but was a no show this morning, I won't be able to check it everyday for awhile, so keep checking back when none appears.
