Oil Stove Explodes Causing Fire

On September 25, 1965 at 8:25 a.m. firemen were dispatched to two miles south of Shippensburg near the Mainsville Road for a house fire. An oil stove exploded destroying a 2-½ story occupied frame house. A family of seven was displaced. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose and West End Fire and Rescue companies battled the blaze. Later in the day firemen responded to a car fire on East King Street and an oven fire on East King Street. The Cumberland Valley community ambulance also answered two calls during the day.
