Volunteer Firefighter

Exhausted and intense volunteer firefighter after battling a blaze in downtown Corry, Pa. The firefighters braved an 84 degree day but in the end were able to get the blaze under control. Our town was on pins and needles as this scenario played out in the memory of a fire fifty years ago on the same block where five our our volunteer firefighters perished in a blaze on Easter Sunday, 1970.
