Queen Street Bedroom Burns

On February 19, 1973 at 9:25 a.m. firefighters responded to 105 S. Queen Street for a house fire. A faulty electric cord caused a fire that was confined to a second floor rear bedroom. The occupied 2-½-story frame dwelling suffered heavy smoke damage. Firefighters from the Vigilant Hose, Cumberland Valley Hose and West End Fire and Rescue companies were on the scene just over an hour. A damage estimate was not available.

I can remember this one. A fireman got hit by the homeowner. She was going crazy about her cats. We did save all her cats. O2 the one. Engine 153 first on the scene. 52 guys on the first line from Engine 153.
