On June 20, 1989 at 11:20 p.m. firefighters were dispatched to 20178 Path Valley Road for a house fire. A lightning strike started a fire that caused extensive fire smoke and water damage to the two and a half story frame house. Firefighters had the blaze under control in just under an hour. The majority of the fire was contained to the rear wall on both floors. Damages were estimated at $18,000 and no injuries were reported. About 45 firefighters from Fannett-Metal, Shade Gap, Mercersburg, Pleasant Hall, Newburg and the Vigilant Hose companies answered the alarm and remained on the scene for more than two hours. WEFR transferred to Pleasant Hall's station while they operated at the scene.
