Borough House Damaged By Fire

On October 12, 1982 at 8:48 p.m. firefighters were dispatched to 218 West King Street for a house fire. A fire believed to have been caused by a defective flue caused heavy damage to an occupied 2-½-story frame dwelling. Most of the fire was confined to the east wall on the first and second floors and the floor in the second floor. The second floor also sustained heavy heat damage. Firefighters had the blaze under control in 30 minutes and remained on the scene two and a half hours. Damages were estimated at $10,000. The Vigilant Hose, Cumberland Valley Hose and West End Fire and Rescue companies battled the blaze.
