Mainsville House Damaged In Blaze

On December 15, 1950 at 5:15 a.m. firemen were sent to Shippensburg R. R. 2, near Mainsville for a house fire. An overheated heatrola sparked a fire that damaged an occupied dwelling. The fire damaged the wall behind the stove and extended to second floor voids before being brought under control. Neighbors and family members formed a bucket brigade to keep the blaze in check before the arrival of firemen. Damages were estimated at $500. The Vigilant Hose Company answered the alarm.
