51 Hogs Die In Fire

On December 29, 1985 at 3:30 p.m. firefighters were dispatched to 1472 Pinola Road for a building fire. A short in the electrical service led to a fire that damaged a 25 X 60 foot livestock shed and killed 51 young hogs. Damages were estimated at $3,300. About 60 firefighters from four companies were on the scene 1-¼ hours. The Vigilant Hose, Cumberland Valley Hose, West End Fire and Rescue and Pleasant Hall fire companies answered the alarm.
