Newburg House Burns

On January 8, 1932 at 9:00 p.m. a call was made to Shippensburg for firemen to respond to a house fire on North High Street, Newburg. A fire of undetermined origin that started in the basement of an occupied seven-room 2-story frame house destroyed the building and almost all its contents. Neighbors forming a bucket brigade were able to protect the surrounding buildings until the fire department arrived. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose Company answered the alarm.
