Fire Destroys Downtown Shed

On December 1, 1962 at 7:00 a.m. firemen responded to Box 222, 44-50 West King Street (now the post office) for a shed fire. A fire of undetermined origin completely destroyed a shed and its contents. Before being extinguished by firemen it badly scorched the outside of a garage at 52 W. King Street. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose, Cumberland Valley Hose and West End Fire and Rescue companies answered the alarm. Firemen no sooner went in quarters when they responded to a furniture van fire at South Earl Street extended. The Cumberland Valley Community ambulance also made two runs for the day.
