Young Boy Dies in Fire

Herald of March 18, 1948

Five-year-old Joseph Allen “Joey” Amick perished in a fire that swept his home Saturday. His remains were found in the smoldering rubble of an apartment building in New Enterprise. Three Martinsburg firemen were burned when shifting winds blew flames over them. Two were treated by a physician.
