House Burns In Penn Twp.
On July 30, 1978 at 8:30 a.m. firefighters were dispatched to a house fire on Rt. 174 six miles east of Walnut Bottom(just east of Cumminstown) in Penn Twp. An accidental fire started in the living room and extended to the kitchen causing approximately $10,000 in damages. The rest of the home was damages by smoke, heat and water. Firefighters from Penn Twp., South Newton, Newville and Mount Holly answered the alarm. The Vigilant Hose Company transferred to South Newton for about two hours while they were at the fire. Not a job that Shipp responded to but it was in the data base and I need easy posts right now.
