A Lakewood Fire Department and Lakewood First Aid member responding to this morning’s blaze was in disbelief when he heard his former home address come over the radio.
“No way!” he thought to himself, as he rushed to the scene to perform his professional duties.
Luckily there was nobody in the home, because the home was set to be demolished anyway, but it was still a painful site to witness.
“As a first responder, the scene takes a whole different twist when you respond knowing it’s your childhood home engulfed in flames,” the Lakewood first responder who grew up in the home told TLS exclusively. “All the childhood memories, the fun times – it was painful to watch.”
The home, built in the 1880’s was destroyed in the blaze.
The cause of the blaze is under investigation. [TLS]
