On September 26, 1996 at 7:44 a.m. Franklin County 911 alerted firefighters to a building fire at 1460 Lincoln Way East, cottage no. 3. An oven left on when the occupants went to work caused a fire that completely destroyed a 1-½ story house. Damages were estimated at $30,000. Firefighters had the blaze under control in 12 minutes and remained on the scene almost three hours. The Fayetteville, Franklin’s, New Franklin’s, Marion, St. Thomas and West End Fire and Rescue Company operated at the scene.
