1946
Fire, Minnig Hotel, Main Street, Tremont
Detail >>
At an early hour on Monday, July 22, 1946, the Minnig Hotel on Main Street in Tremont, Pennsylvania, caught fire and was extensively damaged. The 75 year old three-story building contained 22 rooms and was purchased by the W. E. Minnig family in 1942. The cause of the fire was not determined, but several suspicious characters were said to have been seen around the place early in the morning. The damage was estimated at $10,000 and was partially covered by insurance. Both the Lykens and Wiconisco fire companies were among those to respond to the fire.
1990
Structure Fire, 20 Main Street (Box 22-17)

1994
Washdown, 600 Bl Main St (Box 22-19)
Detail >>
Company 22 was dispatched for a spill that occurred on Main Street in front of Community Banks. A flat bed truck carrying chicken parts had a 55 gallon drum fall off the back and break open on the street. Traffic driving through the spill spread the parts from the spill location through the intersection of Main and Market Streets, to a point East of Dr. Bowers office. The street was a slimy, slippery, smelly mess. Engine 22 responded and attempted to clean up the spill. Product that could be scooped up was placed in containers for disposal. Bio-Petrol was used in an attempt to get the liquid portion of the product to come off the asphalt. The Boro manager was contacted, and he delivered sand to the scene. The sand was spread on the street in an effort to soak up some of the goo. The crew cleaned up what they could, and covered what they could not remove with sand. The roadway was slippery in spots for some time after this incident, with a characteristic bad odor as well.
