Hopewell Twp. House Burns
On March 4, 1954 at 4:00 p.m. firemen were sent to Enola Road, Hopewell Township for a house fire. A fire that started in the chimney and fanned by high winds spread to the roof of an occupied 2-½-story frame house. Before firemen were able to control the blaze the second floor and attic were destroyed. The Vigilant's were on the scene in 20 minutes and found an ample supply of water in the well for battling the blaze. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose Company extinguished the fire. Note that the front of the house was reserved for a tanker in the day.
