A fire of undetermined origin destroyed an occupied 2-½-story frame house. Flames were visible from the second floor when the first firefighters arrived. Firefighters from five companies had the blaze under control two hours and remained on the scene until 5:00 a.m. A damage estimate was not available. The Fannett-Metal, Pleasant Hall, Shade Gap, East Waterford and Cumberland Valley Hose companies operated at the scene.
