  •   Hawley Ambulance & Rescue Company is purchasing the lot across the street where the apartment house burned, March 20th.
        Chief Brian Utegg told Hawley Council April 9th that the Ambulance company will use the lot for parking. He said they will be requesting the Borough for a Change of Use zoning permit.
       The apartment house at 202-204 Chestnut Avenue was badly damaged in the fire and the remains were taken down immediately afterwards due to the hazard they presented. The State Police later ruled that the fire was an arson, and announced the filing of charges against a former tenant who had lived there. No injuries occurred.
        Hawley Ambulance has been in need of parking. The company has bingo at the hall and rents it out for wedding receptions and other functions.
