From the Daily American , Thursday , March 28, 1996:
Fire destroyed this 1870 brick farmhouse about 1 p.m. Wednesday along Route 160 about 2 miles south of Berlin. Dale Leydig, Berlin's fire chief, said a state police fire marshal is inspecting the cause. The property is owned by Brian Stair of Berlin RD 3. The home was vacant. Stair lives in a nearby mobile home. The fire also damaged an adjacent tool shed. An estimate of the damage was not available, but Leydig said the owner has fire insurance. No injuries were reported. Volunteers from Meyersdale assisted on the scene. The Red Cross also responded. A state police marshal has ruled that a blaze that destroyed an unoccupied farmhouse Sunday at Rockwood was arson.
