Faulty Chimney Leads To House Fire

On February 7, 1955 at 1:00 p.m. firemen answered a house fire at Shippensburg R. R. 2, Means Hollow. A faulty chimney sparked a blaze that badly damaged two rooms in an occupied house. No furniture was lost in the blaze because it was all carried from the home prior to the Vigilant's arrival. Firemen had the blaze out by 2:30 p.m.. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose Company extinguished the fire. The Cumberland Valley community ambulance also made one trip during the day.
