1991
Structure Fire, L & S Restorations (Box 21-57)
Detail >>
Alarm sounded for a Washington Township fire at L & S Restorations, a boat refinishing facility along Route 209 that occupied the former Valley Skateland roller rink building. Company 21 responded from Elizabethville with two engines, a rescue, and a tanker. Assistant Chief Merle Hoover was in command. On arrival, the Chief found heavy black smoke issuing from a large metal building. Mutual aid was summoned from surrounding companies 20, 22, 23, 24, 26, and 27. A tanker shuttle was required to supply water for the fire fight. This was a challenge because the area was in drought conditions due to a long dry summer and fall. Engine 22 responded with a crew of six, and was directed to the Wiconisco Creek at Loyalton to establish a tanker fill site, where it spent several hours refilling tankers. Tanker 22 responded to the scene and shuttled several loads of water. Engine 22-1 was placed on standby in quarters for companies working the scene, where it stood by with a crew of five until released at 8:54 p.m. Truck 20 vented the roof of the structure to make an interior attack possible. But, the inside of the building was subjected to a long period of intense heat. Company 22 units remained at the creek until released by command. After the fire, the building was eventually torn down.

1902
Diamond Knitting Mill Fire - Williamstown, PA
Detail >>
The Diamond Knitting Mill in Williamstown was totally destroyed by a fire which started around 12:30 a.m. on November 7, 1902. The cause of the fire is unknown. It started in an area of the mill remote from the boilers. Because of the highly inflammable material in the mill, the fire was soon out of control. The firemen who responded were handicapped by a short water supply. The mill, which made ladies' underwear, was established by John Hughes and John Hoffman. Hughes died in 1896 and a few years later Hoffman became the sole owner. Around the year 1900, W.S. Shelton was admitted to the firm and in 1901 it was incorporated as the Diamond Knitting and Manufacturing Company.
1958
Frank Smeltz Garage Fire - Washington Twp. Dauphin Co., PA
