East Burd Street Kitchen Burns

On August 12, 1970 at 8:21 p.m. firefighters were sent to 320 East Burd Street for a kitchen fire. A deep fryer boiled over setting fire to the kitchen extending to the hallway. Light smoke damaged the remainder of the house. A damage estimate was not available. The Vigilant Hose, Cumberland Valley Hose and West End Fire and Rescue companies answered the alarm.

I am not positive but I think this is the job where Bruce Hockersmith drove the 59 LaFrance to the fire (instead of the "new" John Bean), got in an argument or something about it and left the 59 LaFrance sit. I think he walked home and someone else had to bring the engine back. The "good old days"? At least the "old days". TM
