Fire Destroys Path Valley Home
On May 11, 1986 at about 10:30 a.m. firefighters were dispatched to a house fire at 21635 Path Valley Road. Firefighters leaving Fannettsburg 12 miles away had smoke showing. When the first apparatus arrived the 2 1/2 story wood frame house was well involved. Firefighters laid 1,000 feet of hose to a pond in the rear of the home and also shuttled tankers from a creek about one mile away. Firefighters from three companies battled the blaze for one hour before bringing it under control and remained on the scene over 2 1/2 hours. A damage estimate was not available. The Fannett-Metal, Pleasant Hall and Vigilant Hose companies answered the alarm. Fannett-Metal returned to the scene twice to wet down smoldering debris.
