A fire of undetermined origin completely destroyed a 2-story block and frame Amish store (Rachel’s Country Store). When the first units arrived the building was well involved and a defensive attack was made along with protecting the exposures. Two firefighters suffered minor injuries battling the blaze. A house suffered melted siding from the radiant heat. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose, Cumberland Valley Hose, West End Fire and Rescue, Newburg, Pleasant Hall, South Newton, Fannett-Metal, Letterkenny and Franklin County Air Wagon answered the alarm.
