Fire In Stoughstown

On July 8, 1956 at 2:30 p.m. firemen were sent to Stoughstown, Shippensburg R. R. 1, the John Gsell residence for a building fire. When firemen arrived they found a 14 by 16 foot frame washhouse well involved. On three different occasions the house caught fire but firemen were able to extinguish those fires quickly. A cause and damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose, Cumberland Valley Hose and Friendship’s of Newville answered the alarm.
