Fire Strikes Newburg Family Again
On May 10, 1954 in the morning hours, firemen were sent to Newburg R. R. 1 for a chicken house fire. This was the second fire to strike the Wright family, on May 3, 1953 fire destroyed the families home. The occupants had only moved into their new home one month ago before fire struck again. The chicken coop was a small building once used to house borders before being converted to a chicken house. A strong breeze spread the flames and virtually destroyed the building before firemen arrived. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose Company answered the alarm.
