Store opens despite blaze
CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A fire early Wednesday at a supermarket failed to keep the business from opening on time.
Franklin Fire Co. Assistant Fire Chief Gary Himes said the fire was reported at 5:40 a.m. when employees at Sunnyway Food smelled smoke coming from the incinerator room.
The incinerator is in a concrete block room attached to the back of the store at 49 Warm Spring Road in Hamilton Township. Himes said the employees kept the steel door to the room closed, "which definitely kept it from spreading."
Himes said Wednesday night he did not know what caused the fire and did not have a dollar estimate on the damage. He said it took about 10 minutes to bring under control and firefighters cleared the scene by 7 a.m.
