Garage And Four Automobiles Destroyed

On January 30, 1934 at 10:00 p.m. firemen were sent to 316 East Burd Street for a building fire. A fire of undetermined origin destroyed a four-car 2-story frame 26 by 35 foot garage and four automobiles. A partial roof collapse occurred over the second floor that contained a wood shop. One fireman Lester Angle of the Vigilant's was overcome by smoke. Firemen were hampered in battling the blaze by temperatures hovering just above zero. Damages were estimated in excess of $4,500. The Vigilant Hose and Cumberland Valley Hose companies answered the alarm.
