1901
Big Lick Mine Fire - Williams Twp, Dauphin Co, PA
Detail >>
A fire broke out in No. 1 level of the Big Lick mine on Monday, December 19, 1901, around 8 p.m. A timber gang had entered the mine and 30 minutes after they had visited the No. 1 level on their way down the slope, the smoke was found coming from the slope's mouth. They made it out of the mine safely. There were 42 mules in the mine at that time, 20 of which were in No.1 and No. 2 Levels, the others being at lower levels. It was decided to seal the mine in an effort to smother the fire. This, they did, and monitored the temperature of the mine's water discharge to determine when the fire was out. It was believed that it would take six months before the mine would be operating again.
