All three Shippensburg fire departments were kept busy Monday afternoon soon after a power outage occurred in the borough, knocking out power in businesses and traffic lights around 2:15 p.m. 

The departments answered five calls, two elevator rescues, one at the former Trinity Espiscopal Home and the other on the Shippensburg University Campus, one transformer fire on Old Main Drive, smoke in the building at the Courtyard by Marriott hotel, and a combination of wires down and a brush fire in the 700 block of East King Street.
