Firemen Answer High Street Call Wednesday

The following article is exactly as it appeared in the September 8, 1950 edition of the News Chronicle. The past two years I featured working fires, I have no more in my data base for this day so excuse the easy post.

CV and Vigilant firemen answered a call at 215 High St., home of George Russell, early Wednesday, to extinguish a small fire in a summer kitchen supposedly started by an overheated flue. CV hosemen were on the scene first but were forced to retire in favor of the Vigilant's when their apparatus failed to force any water through the hose.
