    Not arson like the nearby Shenandoah fire at least. I love this time of the year. Its coal region fire season folks. get ready for Facebook fire posts, fire whistle action and blue lights wising around town.


    Here we go again coal region. The cold weather just started in this dump and their has been structure fires, in sheppton, minersville, shenandoah and shamokin etc. This place is a complete disaster! Why people wanna buy property here is beyond my wildest comprehension.
