Cracked Flue Causes Fire

On November 27, 1982 at 2:30 p.m. a 51 box was alerted for a house fire on the Ridge Road, Hopewell Township. A cracked flue started a fire that caused $3,000 damage to an occupied 2-½-story frame house. Most of the fire damage was contained to the voids. Firefighters from six companies had the blaze under control in 30 minutes and remained on the scene for three hours. The Newburg, South Newton, Newville, Vigilant Hose and Cumberland Valley Hose companies operated at the scene.
