On July 17, 1969 at 1:25 p.m. firemen were sent to the area of Johnnies Restaurant, near the turnpike interchange for a mobile home fire. When firemen arrived the mobile home was well involved. The home had not been moved onto yet and 15 minutes before the blaze the gas company had hooked up the gas to the home. Damages were estimated at $8,000. The Newburg Hopewell Fire Company answered the alarm. No other companies were mentioned but it was common in those days for the Vigilant’s to answer structure fires in Newburg’s area.
