Six Dogs Perish In Fire

On February 24, 1983 at 6:20 a.m. firefighters were sent to 313 Means Hollow Road, Southampton Franklin for a barn fire. A heat lamp used to keep puppies warm sparked a blaze that destroyed a small two-story frame barn and its contents killing six dogs. Approximately 40 to 45 firefighters from three fire companies battled the blaze. A damage estimate was not available. The West End Fire and Rescue, Vigilant Hose and Fayetteville fire companies answered the alarm.

I pulled the first line on this one. I think we blitzed first then I advanced the handline inside. I crawled across something here that melted holes in my boots and onto my feet.
