26,000 Pounds Of Rubber Burn

On September 23, 1996 at 10:43 p.m. Chambersburg firefighters were dispatched to a box-trailer fire at Baker Rubber Inc., 810 Progress Road. According to Chief Baldwin tires were shredded in Toronto and packed in 2,200-pound bags. The heat generated from the shredding lingered and sparked the fire in the trailer. Between 12 and 16 bags of shredded tires burned. The blaze was under control in three hours. The West End Fire and Rescue Company assisted the Chambersburg firefighters at the scene.
