The night of Monday, September 25, 2000 proved to be a busy one, particularly for firefighters from Fawn Grove's Citizens' Volunteer Fire Company. Weather conditions were extremely poor with low temperatures and a heavy wind-driven rain. At approximately 1930 hrs., units were dispatched to a reported vehicle accident with 2 pedestrians struck on East Main Street in Fawn Grove. Units operating: E56-2, M-56, A-57, PSP

While operating at the pedestrian accident, Fawn Grove was dispatched as the 2nd due company on a reported structure fire in Lower Chanceford Township. First due units from the Airville Volunteer Fire Company arrived on the scene to find a 3 story farmhouse with heavy fire showing from the top floor.

The cause of the fire is unknown.
