Garage Destroyed On East King Street

On October 18, 1939 in the afternoon hours firemen were set to the rear of the Viener building, East King Street for a fire. A fire of undetermined origin destroyed a frame shed and garage. The garage was empty at the time and the shed contained some rubbish. Damages were estimated at a few hundred dollars. The Cumberland Valley Hose Company extinguished the fire. It is hard to believe the Vigilant Hose Company would not have responded to the incident but the article only mentioned the C.V.’s.
