Barn Fire - Plum (03/11/2007)

March 11th, 2007 - An old barn that was part of a one time working farm in the 80's caught fire along Pa 286 Saltsburg Rd across from the Plum Boro American Legion Post. The fire caused thousands of dollars in damage to Verizon telephone lines and is under investigation for its suspicous nature.

This barn fire brings back a very painful memory of a numerous barn and abandoned structure fires in the 1980's which put farmers and Horse owners on edge during the long hot summer. A group of young men were arrested with several volunteer firefighters. This latest fire has barn owners on edge again hoping this is not a repeat of what happened in the 80's.
