Steel Men and Wooden Ladders

In 1924, a fire destroyed the Emmanuel Episcopal Church, in La Grange.  The fire was one of the largest ever faced by the department and raised a lot of questions and concerns.  Had it not been for some fortuitous conditions the fire could have easily become a conflagration, and destroyed  many homes.  This video is a tribute to the church, the firefighters, and the citizens of L Grange.
