Fire Damages Home

On January 6, 1999 at 7:47 a.m. firefighters responded to a house fire at 19 Creekview Road, Lower Mifflin Township. A crack in the chimney sparked a fire that destroyed two-second floor rooms and the attic of an occupied 2-½ brick and frame residence. The remainder of the home suffered heavy heat, smoke and water damage. The fire displaced six people. It took approximately 35 firefighters from eight companies 40 minutes to control the 2-alarm fire. Firefighters remained on the scene until 11:00 a.m. Damages were estimated at $50,000. The Newville, Upper Frankford, West Pennsboro, Penn Twp., Newburg, Union, Landisburg and Cumberland Valley Hose companies operated at the scene.
