Apartment Damaged At College Park Apts.
On April 20, 1972 at 5:44 p.m. firefighters were dispatched to building “B” building College Park Apartments, Shippensburg R.D. 1 for an apartment fire. A malfunctioning motor in an exhaust fan over a stove sparked a blaze that caused heavy damage to the kitchen and heat and smoke damage to the rest of the apartment. Four people were displaced and firefighters rescued a dog from the blaze and performed CPR on it before transporting it to a local veterinarian. Damages were estimated at $4,500. The Vigilant Hose, Cumberland Valley Hose and West End Fire and Rescue companies answered the alarm.
