Indiana hero lost, Penn. rescued (Lewiston2Capt, is this one of yours?)
I read with sorrow and joy about the mixed fortunes of firefighters in two recent collapses--a fatality in Terre Haute, IN and a rescue after 78 minutes (!!) in Pennsylvania.
Lewiston2Capt, is that your area?

Does anyone know when the Funeral for Brother Ralph Stott will be held?
Any info would be helpful.FTM-PTB

Fortunately no, The Lewiston I reside in is in western NY. I am truely amazed at the number of Lewistons there actually are in the US. Best I can remember there is a Lewiston in New York (of course!) Maine, Idaho, California, Michigan, Nebraska, Utah, Minnesota, Washington, and Pennsylvania.
I didnt realize that the name was so popular. My Lewiston is about 25 miles north of Buffalo.
You may be seeing a report about a train derailment in Lockport, NY that is about 15 miles east of me. Out near where TCFire lives.
I am saddened that Captain Ralph Stott has lost his life, and prayers of comfort go out to his family and friends. But at the same time I am happy for the Lewiston Pennsylvania Fire Companies that they have rescued their brother.Shawn M. Cecula
