The granddaughter of Lieutenant Charles J. Horner, Blaze, recently donated the 70+ year old fire turncoat of her grandfather along with several historical photographs to the Heritage Society of Essex and Middle River.
Lieutenant Horner served at Essex Fire Station #7 which was housed in the building that the Heritage Society currently occupies.
Horner also served as Captain at Station #7 for a short while before passing in 1966.
Donations like Blaze’s help preserve the rich legacy of Essex’s citizens and protectors.
