Lees Cross Roads Home Destroyed
On August 9, 1930 in the evening hours local fireman Dana Porter was headed home when he spotted a glow in the sky. Traveling to investigate the glow he found a house to be on fire in Lees Cross Roads. Dana quickly telephoned the Cumberland Valley Hose Company who responded promptly. When firemen arrived it was to late to save the dwelling and their efforts were concentrated on saving nearby buildings. The cause of the fire was ruled arson and local firemen reported that this was the third time this family had been burned out of their home in 12 years. A person was arrested for setting the fire. Sorry for the run of 1930 fires but sometimes I need easy entries and these were already typed into the data base.
