CFD Responds to Zion Reform Church

At 9:45 a.m., CFD was alerted to 259 South Main Street, Zion Reform Church, for something burning inside. Chief 1 arrived to find normal conditions from all sides. After investigating, it was found that the light ballast caught fire charring wood around the element in the display case. The fire was out upon arrival and no extension past the framing was noted. Crews cleared in around one hour.
