THANKS, DAD

Reporter/Mike Brown

THANKS, DAD Rockdale's volunteer firefighting community is a family in a lot of ways but it doesn't get more special than this. Longtime firefighter Mike Korenek helps his son, Jason, with an air pack at Friday's fire which destroyed a home southeast of Rockdale. Volunteers were on the scene at County Road 315 for more than five hours after the 6:22 p.m. alarm and used over 13,000 gallons of water. See page 1A.
