Middle Spring Home Burns

On July 23, 1949 in the morning hours firemen responded to a fire at the Ambrose Leedy residence in Middle Spring (beside the Grange Hall). A defective oil stove sparked a blaze that damaged two kitchens in the home before being controlled by firemen. Damages were estimated at $750. The Vigilant Hose Company answered the alarm. Firemen also responded to a well-involved barn fire on the Pinola Road during the day, but that post is for another year.

Just sitting back thinking, in 1949 what apparatus would have responded to this call?
