Greene Twp. Home Burns

On August 23, 2000 at 5:30 p.m. Franklin County 911 alerted units to a mobile home fire at 1595 Coldsmith Road, Greene Township Franklin County. According to Fayetteville Deputy Chief Bob “Squirrel” Albrecht when firefighters arrived the home was 75% well involved. Firefighters from five companies had the blaze under control in 15 minutes. The blaze began when the occupant was heating oil in a pan on the stove. After the oil began burning they tried to extinguish the blaze with water before calling 911. The family of four was displaced; a damage estimate was not available. The Fayetteville, Letterkenny, Franklin, West End Fire and Rescue and Cumberland Valley Hose companies operated at the scene. Earlier in the afternoon all three Shippensburg fire companies answered an inside investigation at 211 E. King Street.
