Chimney Fire With Extension

On January 2, 1982 at 6:45 a.m. companies were dispatched to 148 West Orange Street for a chimney fire with extension. A blaze that started in the chimney spread to a wall and the roof causing $5,000 to $10,000 damage before being extinguished by firefighters. According to Chief Goodhart the attic and an exterior wall were extensively damaged along with a common wall in the second floor of the occupied 2-½-story frame dwelling. Firefighters were on the scene until 9:10 a.m. The Vigilant Hose, Cumberland Valley Hose and West End Fire and Rescue companies battled the blaze.
