Fire Damages Brookside Avenue Home

On July 3, 1974 at 6:52 a.m. firemen were dispatched to a house fire at the Tom Moore residence on Brookside Avenue, Shippensburg Township. Mr. Moore awoke to smoke and had to escape through a rear window in the two and a half story frame house. Firemen contained the blaze to the living room however damage was extensive. Assistant borough fire chief John Snyder said the cause appeared to be electrical in nature. A damages estimate was not given. Apparatus returned to quarters by 9 a.m. The Vigilant Hose, Cumberland Valley Hose and West End Fire and Rescue companies answered the alarm. The Cumberland Valley ambulance made one run during the day.
