Fire Guts Trailer

On July 20, 1963 at 5:30 p.m. firemen were sent to the Jack Lutz residence in the trailer park to the rear of the Tropical Treat along U.S. Rt. 11. The fire started when the occupant put a pan of grease on the stove and then got in the shower. Vigilant Chief Charles Mouer said three quarters of the home-suffered fire damage. A damage estimate was not listed. The Vigilant Hose Company answered the alarm, the article mentioned no other fire companies responding but I would think that WEFR also answered the call.

Later in the afternoon the Vigilant Hose Company responded to a field fire near the Oak Grove School.
