UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL—
Sometimes this is the way you fight blazes and Rockdale VFD Fire Chief Ward Roddam climbed onto the roof of a home owned by Bradley Allen as volunteers battled the blaze for several hours. The house, located at the end of County Road 308A was gutted. Trucks from the Milano and Thorndale VFDs were summoned to provide assistance “We appreciate the support,” Roddam said. “At rural fires like this getting water is a major factor.” Rockdale VFD Ladies Auxiliary provided cold drinks at the scene.
