Vigilant’s Extinguish Rural Fire Friday PM

On this day the only major incident to occur was in 2006, so I had to dig something else up. This incident occurred in 1950 and is reprinted here exactly as it appeared in The News Chronicle.

The Vigilant’s extinguished a chimney fire at the home of Raymond Rebuck Jr., Newburg R. R., Friday evening (November 24, 1950). Firemen said that a tin roof prevented the fire from causing real damage before they arrived on the scene. The fire broke out early Friday evening before the rains and winds started.
