On September 19, 1930 at 7:30 p.m. firemen were sent to a barn fire at Shippensburg R. D. 5, the Carl Goodhart farm. A fire of undetermined origin destroyed a large barn and its contents. Also lost were a hog pen, wagon shed and implement shed. A damage estimate was not available. The Cumberland Valley Hose Company answered the alarm but were of little use because of the lack of water. A small stream was nearby but because of the summer drought conditions it was nearly dry.
