John Weaver House Fire - Elizabethville, PA
Detail >>
At 6:30PM on Wednesday, March 14, 1947, John Weaver, a farmer, walked a quarter of a mile to use a neighbor's telephone to notify the Elizabethville fire company that his house was on fire. Reliance Hose Company promptly answered the call and searched for half an hour, using smoke masks, to find the source of the smoldering fire in the cieling above a stove pipe in the kitchen. The damage caused by smoke and fire was estimated at $150, covered by insurance. The cause of the fire was an overheated stove pipe.

Two Penn Central freight trains collided in Herndon on Sunday, March 12, 1972. The trains were each traveling 30 m.p.h. when they hit head-on. A northbound freight train was hauling pulp board, clay, and fertilizer from Enola to Wilkes-Barre in 102 cars. A southbound train was carrying coal in 104 cars from Renovo to the Pennsylvania Power & Light Co. in York Haven. The trains stretched for a mile in either direction from the impact point, at which forty-five cars were piled two deep over the four engines. Four men died in the crash. Rail cars were into structures, and a fire broke out in a car load of fertilizer. The engine's diesel fuel also burned for hours.
