hey pez we hadn't seen your stupid ass in a while not that we missed you. only a stupid piece of garbage would talk like that on this thread. some people are still around that have ties to the high school fire. and in case you forgot a man lost his life in that fire. show some respect.

I knew the other fireman's family very well. His kids and all of my siblings played together for many years. The fall was devastating to the family. I can still remember seeing the fireman walking down the street - brought tears to my eyes. The fireman who was killed left behind a bunch of little kids as well.
Everyone knew the fire whistle code for the High School. I bet every paid and volunteer fireman was at that blaze. It still brings me such sadness ater all these years. The aftermath was that the school system was totally in disaray. The High School and Junior High went on 1/2 day sessions while the Weber Ave Elementary kids were bussed over to a school in Frankfort.
This fired effected a lot of people.
I had to come back to this after some time. We must know each other as my Dad was the one who fell with Mr Seymour. I see that you speak about my Dad and my brothers. This winter I was given a name which has been hinted about and mentioned here. I do not know him and dont really care too. I will just hope and pray that he has become a respectable person after causing two families such pain. If not I guess he will have to answer to another power someday. I would like to hear from you in regards to my Dad. As you must know he passed shortly after I graduated but I never heard stories during this time I was born after the fire. You seem to have known him and my brothers though. I am the youngest of Robert Day and proud that he would sacrifice his life for the safety of others.

Nothing confidential really on my part. Im sure most know this is Bob Days only daughter. I was not born during this time and it was never really spoken too much growing up. I had not even realized the pain he was really in until reading on here so I am interested in finding out more about my Dad and that is all. My email is Ldmer81@gmail.com No secrets here. As far as the name I was told I would not even be sure if that is true but several on here also mentioned the name. I have gotten to the point that it is not really important to me anymore as it was before. I guess there comes a time when one must move on.{Ps sorry about the Im ashamed in the name not sure where that came up.} Wishing all the best. Leisa

Some of know how to use these forums in the proper way and NOT to openly used someone else's name. There are responsible internet users out here - amazing, isn't it?

I started this post because someone asked me about the fire. My dad was a cop at the time and may have been on duty that night or was called back in?He would never say much about it because he grew up with and knew the firefighter who died? But there was a coverup and he toke it personel and quit the force and got in the arms.I have a great respect for them but not those responsible 4 covering it up?(my dads name was Danford)Your family would know him im sure.I dont mean 2 disrespect anyone i was just sure it was a coverup and its not cool the family diserve the truth and the firefighters should be Honored!!!(im my dads only son)
