    Unhappy Keokuk, Iowa

    Brothers and Sisters...

    Today marks another sad anniversary.. it is the 4th anniversary of the Keokuk fire, which killed Assistant Cheif Dave McNally, Firefighter Jason Bitting and Firefighter Nate Tuck, 39.

    Three children also died in the fire... twins Rebecca and Robert Cooper and Jessica McFarland.

    Let us not forget their sacrifice to save others....

    Thanks for the reminder Gonzo.
    Hard to belive it has been four years since this happened.
    Let us not forget!
