Shed Burns In Walnut Bottom

On August 21, 1939 in the morning hours firemen responded to the Cumberland Valley Cooperative property in Walnut Bottom for a building fire. Fire started on the outside of the large lumber and hay shed and spread quickly before being noticed. Firemen responded with two pumpers and had two large streams of water on the building but were unable to save the building or its contents. Water was obtained from a nearby cistern. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose Company responded to the blaze.
