Fire Damages Mongul Home

On December 6, 1938 at 12:00 p.m. firemen responded to the Roxbury Road, just north of Mongul for a house fire. A fire that started in the area of the chimney destroyed two rooms on the first and second floors of an occupied house. Damages were estimated at several thousand dollars. Neighbors quickly carried furnishings from the home saving most and fought the blaze on the first floor with water from a nearby cistern until firemen arrived. The Vigilant Hose Company extinguished the fire.
