University lodge in shippensburg...I remeber bc some one who had used the pack before me left it half full just as we started to catch fire my low air alarm went off.. nothing like bein fifth engine in and catching fire first. when we finally popped the door to the banquet hall it was off.. looked great coming though town seeing the glow in the sky and the truck trying to break pd's windows bc he parked in the way.

It figures Maytag would bring up fires from the '70s. How about the Frick fire? All these are the big ones. I think my most memorable fire is my first fire. Just a single family in the 4-2 box area in 1983. Boy was I scared poopless.
Lutheran church fire in ship ive been told many stories about. I think my grandfather was one of the 53 chiefs he said at the time. How did 53 manage to bend thier ladder though? was told they drove it home w the ladder lowered but extended off he rear?

MY MOST MEMORABLE FIRE ITS A TIE BETWEEN FRICK CO. FIRE, AND THE PLANE CRASH ON SOUTH POTOMAC STREET BACK,IN 1993, THE PLANE EXPLODED ON IMPACT AND THE HOUSE WAS FULLY INVOLVED AND COLLAPSED ABOUT 20 MIN. AFTER IMPACT.
It's not a Franklin County fire but worth mentioning.
The Glenn Miller/Victory Theatre Fire in Shbg. Will never forget hearing Chief 4 Ed Goodheart on the air screaming for second alarm as he was walking out of his house and then cursing on the air at county when they told him they didn't have an ETA for penelec to the scene. Believe the fire went 4 alarms. Many units from Cumberland & Franklin were their not to mention the air buggy from Washington County also was their.
