Fireman Overcome At Earl Street Fire

On November 26, 1931 at 2:00 p.m. Shippensburg firemen were alerted to a building fire on North Earl Street. A blaze that began in a furnace room caused $1,000 damage to a 2-story frame structure occupied by a restaurant and residence. One fireman Paul Snoke, was overcome by smoke and carried to an adjoining roof. Firemen administered first aid to him and after sometime were able to revive him at the scene. The Vigilant Hose and Cumberland Valley Hose companies answered the alarm.
