1945
Garage Fire, West Lykens (Enders)
Detail >>
On the night of Monday, November 20, 1945, at 10:55 p.m.,fire was discovered in a large outbuilding on the property of James Enders in West Lykens. Both Lykens and Wiconisco firemen responded and did everything possible to save the structure, which burned rapidly due to high winds. The Lykens firemen pumped water from the swimming pool, while the Wiconisco firemen used their booster equipment. The building, which was completely destroyed by the fire, had been undergoing renovations and was having a concrete floor installed in preparation to be used as a garage and repair shop. All equipment and tools were saved. The loss was not covered by insurance.
1960
Fire, Charles Paul's, Big Run
Detail >>
Fire of undetermined origin, but believed to have started near the chimney, completely gutted the interior of the Big Run home of Charles Paul on Sunday afternoon, November 20, 1960. The Lykens fire company responded to the alarm sent in at about 1:40PM. Hampered by the lack of water at the site of the fire, the Wiconisco fire company was also called to the scene. The use of the booster tanks on both fire trucks was the only thing that prevented the structure from being completely destroyed. The interior was gutted, and most of the furniture and appliances were destroyed according to the report of the fire chief, Elwood Miller. The structure had at one time been used as a small service station, but for some time past, Mr. Paul had been using it as his residence. No one was injured, according to reports.
