Pittston 's Fire departments have a long history of fighting fires and rescuing people from burning buildings. I have put together as a hobby a book on Greater Pittston's fire departments. One story in the book is the story of a Pittston fireman Joe Rizzo, who was fighting a fire on S. Main st,when eight peope were saved from the burning building. Those already saved informed Rizzo that there were two people on the third floor and as where they were are as good as dead, Fireman Rizzo a fireman for over twenty years said "Like hell they are!" He had the ladder truch run its ladder to a window of the third floor and with the help of others rescued a 69 year old woman and her daughter and carried them down the ladder to safety. There are other stories of Pittston area firefighters rescuing people trapped in burning buildings.
