House Fire In Roxbury

On June 9, 1930 in the morning hours an alarm of fire was received from Roxbury. The Cumberland Valley Hose Company was sent to a house fire just south of the two bridges south of Roxbury and arrived within 20 minutes of receiving the alarm. Sparks ignited carpet in an upstairs room. The blaze gained some headway before it was noticed. Road workers formed a bucket brigade and had the fire under control before the arrival of firemen. Firemen obtained water from a nearby spring to battle the blaze. The room was destroyed and the house sustained water damage. A damage estimate was not available.
