Fire Guts Farmhouse

On June 2, 2005 at 1:53 a.m. firefighters responded to a house fire at 3419 Ritner Highway, West Pennsboro Twp. When firefighters arrived flames were showing from the roof and side 1 of the 2-½-story frame house. Almost 50 firefighters from nine companies battled the blaze and remained on the scene until nearly 7 a.m. Water had to be shuttles by tankers from the Oak Flat Elementary School to battle the blaze. A damage estimate was not listed but the family lost everything. The Friendship Hose (Newville), Penn Twp., South Newton, West Pennsboro, Upper Frankford, Cumberland Valley Hose, Vigilant Hose, West End Fire and Rescue and the Union of Carlisle answered the alarm.
