East Scranton—A serious cave-in and flood In the Pine Brook colliery of the Scranton Coal Co. took place on Mar. 30. The cave-in occurred in Roaring Creek in Nay Aug Park and was about 6 ft. in diameter. The water from the creek flowed rapidly into the mine and help was called in an attempt to stem the tide. Baled hay, bags of sand, and anything else available was used and finally the flow of water was stopped. There were several men in the mine at the time, but all were gotten out safely
