Lock Haven, PA Hospital Fire, Aug 1908

Hospital Burned

Fire broke out in the Lock Haven hospital at 12:45 o’clock last Tuesday afternoon and in less than an hour the entire building was in ashes. All of the patients were taken out in safety. There was no water available with which to fight the flames and nothing could be done to save the building from destruction. Intense excitement prevailed throughout the city while the fire was in progress, but at the hospital the nurses and physicians worked heroically until every inmate was removed from the building. The hospital will be rebuilt.
