Called Twice To Fire

With only one major incident occurring on this day (1893) I was grasping at straws for a post, and here is the one I pulled.

The Vigilant Hose Company made two runs Sunday morning (November 12, 1939) to Lees Cross Roads to put out a chimney fire at the home of Jay Stine. The first alarm was sounded at 8:30. At 10:45 the chimney began burning again and firemen returned. The house is owned by Jerry Myers.

The following incident was reprinted here exactly as it appeared in The Shippensburg News on Tuesday November 14, 1939.

Was this the Stine house on the corner that we run in the late 70's and early 80's for chimney fires?
