Quick Action Saves House

On July 9, 1924 at 5 a.m. occupants on East Orange Street awoke to find smoke in their house. The occupant Mrs. Earl Brewster called James Pechart a member of the C.V. Hose Company who along with Fire Chief Leighton Hargleroad took the chemical truck to the scene. The fire started in the kitchen at a side door leading to the dinning room and burned up through a wall into the bedroom above. Quick work by firemen with a chemical line subdued the flames. A damage estimate was not available. The Cumberland Valley Hose Company answered the alarm.
