Volunteer firefighters Dick Clinite and Bill Lee outside the Econogas Company fire, 1964

Dublin Core

Description

Two volunteer firefighters, marked in pen as 'Dick Clinite (retired)' and 'Bill Lee (moved)', observe as the Econogas fire overtakes a truck further away. Clinite stands behind a fire engine with an partially unraveled fire hose at his feet while Lee walks behind him.

According to the Iowa City Press-Citizen, no fire fighters were hurt while putting down this fire (1964).

While the photograph has a written date of 1965, the Iowa City Press-Citizen and the Mary Belle Brandstatter, who wrote a short history about the Coralville Volunteer Fire Department for Lest We Forget (p. 53-54), both date this event as June of 1964.
